Admissions Process

The admissions process at Dunottar is designed to help us identify those pupils who will thrive at our school.  We make sure that the admissions process is as friendly and relaxed as it can be so that your son or daughter can be themselves on the entrance assessment day and do their very best.

Registration and Main Entry Points

The main entry points for Dunottar School are at 11+, 13+ and 16+.  We also offer deferred 13+ entry (e.g. assessment taken at 11+ and deferred for two years).  Entry into other year groups will be considered where places are available and families who are relocating to the area will be considered at any time. 

You may register your son or daughter at any time prior to the registration deadline.  No priority is given to early registrations and all pupils are considered on an equal basis at the point of assessment. 

  • For 11+ entry your son or daughter can be registered at any time before 30th November of the year prior to entry (e.g. 30th November 2018 for September 2019 entry). 
  • For 13+ entry your son or daughter can be registered at any time before 31st October of the year prior to entry (e.g. 31st October 2018 for September 2019 entry). 
  • Applications for entry to Sixth Form are usually required by 31st January in the year of entry (e.g. 31st January 2019 for September 2019 entry) but we are happy to consider later applications on merit. 
  • Please contact our admissions team on 01737 761945 for further information.

To register your son or daughter simply complete the Registration Form and return it with the non-refundable £100 registration fee (cheque made payable to UCST - Dunottar School).
