COVID-19 UPDATE: School will be closed from Friday 20th March until further notice. Lessons will continue remotely and work is being set for completion at home. We will be keeping our website and social media updated during this period. Please use email wherever possible, or leave a phone message (messages will be monitored during normal working hours).


While we would never understate the importance of traditional lessons, at Dunottar we are also mindful of the important lessons which are learnt away from the classroom and outside the curriculum.

The school years are a fantastic time to try out a wealth of different activities and we aim to give our pupils every opportunity possible to have interesting experiences, acquire skills, develop hobbies and, of course, to have fun!  We want our pupils to find things they love and which give them a sense of belonging but we also want them to challenge themselves, to be adventurous and try new things.

We hold a Co-curricular Fair at the start of the school year which allows pupils to find out about everything on offer at Dunottar so they can select those clubs that they would like to join.  With clubs covering music, art, drama, food, dissection, drones, sports, Lego robotics, rock climbing and much, much more, there really is something for everyone.

While our pupils at Dunottar continue with their education from home, it is very important to us that we provide a range of co-curricular clubs for pupils to engage in alongside their academic studies. Below is our virtual co-curricular timetable for the Summer Term.
