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.

Our main intake at Dunottar is in Year 7 and Year 12.

You may register your son or daughter at any time prior to the registration deadline of 24th September 2024 at 9am for Year 7 2025 entry.  To register your son or daughter simply complete the online Registration Form and transfer a non-refundable £100 registration fee to the School Account using the bank details on the form.

As part of the admissions process, once your child is registered with us, we will contact their current school to request a confidential reference.


After every workshop/open day/ taster session and even assessment day my son has come away happy and buzzing about what was on offer. Ultimately, this is the reason that we have chosen Dunottar for our son because we believe that he will be happy and excited to engage in everything Dunottar has to offer him. We believe it is a school where his talents will be nurtured and we hope he will continue to thrive. He is thrilled to be joining Year 7 and already can’t wait to start!

The ethos of the school really shines through the admissions process. The fact that the process is split into different days, the children get so many opportunities to come to the school and meet the staff, etc. They came away from each experience really enthusiastic about the school as each assessment was made non-stressful and enjoyable.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for organising the Warrior Learner assessment day so efficiently.  Our son loved his morning. He was nervous before we arrived but your whole team do such a fabulous job making them all feel at ease that he said he had really enjoyed it. 

Thank you for providing such a welcoming, reassuring atmosphere. You clearly put all the children at ease which enabled them to do their best.
