Dunottar School was established in 1926 by Mrs Elliot-Pyle, who chose for the school’s crest a pelican mother nurturing her young. Her vision was to create a school in which pupils would also be nurtured by a team of highly-qualified, dedicated and caring teachers. Each individual pupil would be valued and encouraged to attain their potential. Each pupil would be equipped with the skills to face the wider world and the confidence to take risks.
Today, the ethos of the school remains the same. Your child will not be a nameless face, lost in a large class. As a member of our close-knit community, their abilities will be encouraged through what the ISI inspectors describe as an ‘outstanding’ academic curriculum.
Our academic results speak for themselves. Your child’s academic achievements might even exceed the predictions made when they first join us: we are well known for our ‘added value’ scores (what is added value?).
We now look forward to being part of United Learning and welcoming boys from September 2014.
These are very exciting times at Dunottar School – come and see for yourself.
