We are delighted to announce that Dunottar has been given a glowing review in the Tatler School Guide 2021, describing the school as “a secret Surrey star” and praising the pastoral care.
Each year, Tatler’s team of researchers gathers information on the UK’s finest independent schools, to produce a shortlist which will feature in their prestigious guide. Schools are not just chosen for their academic results or their outstanding facilities (although these are closely looked at). To feature in the Tatler Schools Guide schools must offer the whole package – holistic pastoral care, a focus on character education as much as pure academics, and the ability to accommodate and nurture all their pupils, resulting in well educated, but most importantly, happy children.
This is the first time that the school has featured in the guide since becoming co-educational in 2015.
“Parents rave about the warm and nurturing atmosphere at Dunottar, which is something of a secret Surrey star, set in a Palladian-style mansion in 15 beautiful acres just outside Reigate town centre. According to one mother, the pastoral care at this co-ed (it was all-girls until 2014) is ‘second to none’, with a very strong community ethos and great value placed on knowing every child as an individual and developing their character. ‘The personal attention you get as a parent is outstanding too,’ adds another mother. ‘An email is replied to the same day and often followed up with a phone call to discuss any issue with real insight into your child.’ *
