Sports Scholarships are awarded to candidates who demonstrate excellent potential across our core sports at Dunottar: Football, Netball and Cricket for girls, Rugby, Football and Cricket for boys. A high level of performance within Swimming and/or Athletics can support a candidate’s application.
For the Year 7 award we would expect candidates to be playing competitively at A team level at their current school, to be playing some club sport outside school and to show the potential to compete at county level by the time they join Dunottar. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a high level of personal fitness and, during the assessment process, the Director of Sport will be looking for candidates who show an awareness of tactical play and a positive attitude, in addition to their sporting talent and skills.
Sports Scholars are expected to be role models in their approach to sport and physical activity. They will show commitment to all aspects of sports at school, participating fully in co-curricular activities, teams and competitive fixtures and leading by example. As Sport Scholars progress through the school, they are also expected to be involved in coaching, leading and officiating our younger pupils.
