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.

The main intake is in Year 7 and Year 12, with a limited number of places available for Year 9 entry (including deferred entry for this year group).  We are happy to consider pupils joining into other year groups where spaces are available.


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 Year 7 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). 
  • Applications for entry into Year 12 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 regarding Year 9 entry.

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).
