Co-educational independent day school for ages 11 to 18

Welcome to Dunottar School

Dunottar is a school with high standards and a warm heart, providing an excellent, all-round education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18.  In our vibrant, welcoming community, where everyone is known and valued, pupils are challenged and supported to achieve more than they believed possible. 

At Dunottar we aim to add an extra element of interest, involvement and enthusiasm to every aspect of school life so that our pupils truly thrive. From absorbing lessons which spark imaginations, to extraordinary pastoral care and exciting opportunities beyond the classroom, we want our pupils to think critically, to challenge convention and to aim high.

Expectations and standards are high in all areas of school life and every pupil is encouraged to aspire to be the best they can be; we are well known for our excellent ‘added value’Sport is competitive, inclusive and a huge part of school life, while creativity flourishes through music, drama and art.  Dunottar is a happy school where pupils enjoy constructive relationships with teaching staff, and form great friendships with their peers, as they grow in confidence and independence. 

If you are considering our school for your son or daughter, the best way to get to know us is to visit and see for yourself what we can offer your family; we look forward to welcoming you to Dunottar School at one of our Open Mornings or for a personal tour.
