During the current period of school closures, we are determined to provide the best possible education to all children and are offering very strong home learning support, which will be further enhanced in the summer term. We believe that all pupils will continue to learn well and make good progress. However, we know that pupils cannot access the full school experience, so are reducing our tuition fees by 10% for the summer term (full fees are shown below). These reductions will apply for the whole term, regardless of whether schools return before the summer holiday.
We will also be freezing fees until at least January 2021 so that Autumn Term 2020 fees will be the same as for Autumn 2019.

|Year 7 – Year 13 (payment by monthly or termly Direct Debit)||£5,610|

Music, Speech and Drama are offered as optional extra subjects. Fees are payable in advance, directly to the individual tutor, who will invoice parents at the beginning of each term. Please note that a full term’s notice of discontinuance is required, otherwise a full term’s fees will be payable in lieu. Further details are available on request.
A fee reduction of 5% is automatically applied for any sibling of a current pupil who joins the school in the form of a Sibling Discount. The fee reduction is 10% for the third or subsequent sibling(s) and this discount applies while the siblings are both/all at school.
If a pupil is withdrawn, this deposit is non-returnable. All fees are payable strictly in advance and become due on the first day of term. Late payment of fees is subject to a late payment charge. Cheques should be made payable to UCST – Dunottar School. No rebate of fees is allowed by the School for absence.
We offer the facility to pay school fees by direct debit with no extra charges. If you want to pay by termly direct debit, the first payment will be debited on 1 September (or the next working day). If you want to pay in monthly instalments by direct debit, the first payment will be debited on 1 August (or the next working day). For more information about the instalment scheme and for a direct debit application form please download the information below.
The School requires a full term’s notice of withdrawal in writing, on or before the first day of term, of the removal of the pupil from the School. The same notice is required for cessation of any extra-curricular subject, school lunch or coach travel. In the event of withdrawal without the required notice, a full term’s fees will be charged in lieu.
