Why Choose Dunottar?

The Difference is Dunottar

At Dunottar, our aim is to bring out the best in every pupil, enabling them to be the very best they can be. By spending time with each individual pupil, we aim to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, is able to achieve excellent "added value" in their academic work. We pride ourselves on our warm and nurturing, family environment, where pupils are supported and encouraged to succeed both academically and outside the classroom. We offer a broad and exciting co-curricular programme, with extensive opportunities for pupils to try something new, broadening their interests and rising to new challenges.

Warrior Learning

At Dunottar we enable our pupils to achieve spectacular outcomes by encouraging them to exhibit the seven behaviours of 'warrior learners'; aspiration, creativity, tenacity, independence, curiosity, collaboration and inclusivity, preparing them for the fast paced and ever changing world we live in.
