In January 2021, we opened our £4.5million Performing Arts Centre. This state-of-the-art facility comprises a 500-seat theatre equipped with all the latest lighting and acoustic technology, large drama studio, along with multiple music classrooms and practice rooms. This fantastic new facility provides a unique performance space to motivate and inspire our young musicians.
With three choirs, a Senior Orchestra, Chamber and Jazz Ensembles, Dunottar pupils have many opportunities to sing and play together and to perform to appreciative audiences. A significant number of pupils elect to learn a musical instrument in school through individual instrumental lessons taught by visits music staff. Music Scholarships are offered to those who show exceptional potential on entry in Year 7 and Year 12.
