Entrance Assessments

The Year 7 assessment day takes place in early January of the year of entry (i.e. January 2020 for September 2020 entry). The assessment day is 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.

Academic assessments for Year 7 entry will be in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning.  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.

In addition to the tests, all pupils will have a friendly, informal interview with a member of staff. Pupils will also take part in a number of individual and group activities to allow us to assess their creativity and how they work with other children.  No preparation for these activities is required.
