Top Scottish title and record-breaking results
As Dollar prepares to launch its bicentenary year in June 2018, it remains one of Scotland’s best performing independent schools, highly regarded by parents.
Dollar was recently named The Sunday Times Scottish Independent Secondary School of the Year, having moved up the academic league tables to third in Scotland.
Pupils study the Scottish curriculum and benefit from the widest choice of Highers anywhere in the country.
In 2017, pupils set a new school record with a 98 per cent pass rate at Higher level and almost a third of the year group achieved five or more A-grades.
Results at National 5 level were just as excellent, with an A-grade pass rate of 72.5 per cent.
But learning extends well beyond the classroom. Dollar has over 70 co-curricular activities, ranging from sport and the arts to academic clubs, volunteering, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and a Combined Cadet Force with over 300 members.
Many activities are pursued to a high level – Dollar has produced national and international performers in many areas, particularly sport, music and art.
However, Dollar is focused on participation as much as excellence and provision is such that children of all abilities can find something they enjoy.
Dollar provides a stimulating and friendly environment for learning.
The rich curriculum offers flexibility and choice, and the support from teachers and form tutors is second to none.
The school remains a popular option for local families and the extensive network of bus routes ensures convenient travel to and from the campus.
