Academic Results

Academic results are strong and Dunottar pupils achieve and exceed their personal goals; the school is well known for its excellent ‘added value’.

At the heart of everything we do at Dunottar is our desire to support every child to fulfil their own potential.  For some this will mean gaining a clutch of A*s which will lead them on to their first choice university course, while for others success will be defined by a different set of results.  Whatever shape this success takes, the consistent theme is that it meets the goals, aspirations and hopes of that individual child and enables them to take the next steps in life, for higher education or a future career that excites and motivates them.
