Open Mornings

Year 7 Working Open Mornings

We are delighted to welcome parents and families to our Working Open Mornings, which run throughout the year. A Working Open Morning means the school is running as normal and you will see lessons in action during your visit. Visits start with a tour of our beautiful grounds and facilities guided by our Year 8 pupils, followed by a presentation from Mr Mark Tottman, Headmaster, our Deputy Head Academic, Mrs Janine Hislop and our Deputy Head Pastoral, Mr John Weiner in our fabulous Performing Arts Centre. We encourage you to bring your child with you to the Open Morning.

Our Working Open Mornings run from 9.45am to 11.20am.

I would like to extend my gratitude and commendation to my two tour guides.  They were the most personable, confident and informative guides I could have hoped for and an ideal example of the demeanour and attitude I would wish for my own son to behave and the ideal ambassadors for your school.

It was fantastic seeing the school and the wonderful changes that have taken place since I attended Dunottar in the 1990s!

I was so impressed with the facilities and the passion and dedication of the teaching and pastoral staff. The nurturing ethos of the school shone through in everyone that spoke.

We were very impressed with the school – the warm welcome we received, your core values, as well as the opportunities you offer.

I was blown away by the school and its philosophy.

Our guides were a real credit to Dunottar. They showed confidence and excellent communication skills, and were very thoughtful in the questions they asked our son (kindly focussing on areas of particular interest to him). It was also wonderful to see first hand all the strengths of the school we were told about at the Open Morning talk clearly coming through during the tour and when speaking to our guides.

The two Year 8 boys who showed me around the school were extremely knowledgeable, interesting and engaging. A credit to the school.

Thank you very much for a lovely morning at your Open Morning. We were impressed by the Headteacher, the Leadership team, the teachers, the facilities and thoroughly enjoyed our tour by the lovely children who oozed with a great enthusiasm for Dunottar.

My daughter really enjoyed the Open Morning and we thought that the videos were particularly engaging and showed a good cross section of life at Dunottar. The theatre is so impressive!
