Our Year 7 assessments are designed for pupils to learn more about life at Dunottar and to enable us to begin to get to know your child and to help us assess their ability to fit into the Dunottar community.

Pupils will take part in our Warrior Learner Assessments, which involve a number of individual and group activities, allowing us to assess their creativity and how they work with other children.  No preparation for these activities is required. All pupils will also have a friendly, informal interview with a member of staff.

In addition, pupils will sit academic assessments in English, Mathematics and an online test covering: Verbal, Non-Verbal and numerical exercises.  In English and Mathematics the tests are based on the National Curriculum work that the pupils will have been doing in their current school.  No special tutoring is required beyond this.

Please contact our admissions team on 01737 761945 for further information regarding the admission process.
