Year 12 Admissions

The two years spent in the Sixth Form are exciting times – exploring subjects in depth and taking advantage of the wealth of opportunities that are on offer.

If you are a current pupil and would like to find out more about the Sixth Form, please talk to Mrs Jackson, Director of Sixth Form or any member of the Sixth Form team.

If you are looking to join Dunottar for Sixth Form, please come and visit us, we would be delighted to show you around and tell you all about the exciting opportunities and experiences that we offer.

Key Dates

External applications for Sixth Form admission are usually required by the beginning of December in the year before entry (e.g. 1st December 2024 for September 2025 entry) but we are happy to consider later applications on merit.

Entrance Assessments

Any pupil who wishes to join Dunottar School in Year 12 will be interviewed by a senior member of staff, will tour the school and meet the Head of Sixth Form and the Heads of Departments of the subjects that the pupil wishes to study at A Level.

We will also request references from the current school.

To achieve three A Levels and thrive in our Sixth Form, we expect pupils to achieve a minimum of six grade 6s at GCSE, with those looking to study Maths or Science requiring grade 7s.

We understand that not all pupils will achieve these grades and may require an adapted programme of study. Please do contact us if this is the case, as we want each individual pupil to follow the educational pathway best suited to their needs and can tailor your programme accordingly.
