The top independent boarding school has an outstanding academic reputation and our high-quality programme of activities outside the classroom helps bring out the best in young people, developing confidence, enthusiasm and independence of mind. The Dollar community is strikingly vibrant, positive and welcoming.The teaching facilities are first class and include a new award-winning Modern Languages buildling, specialised teaching areas for Science, Music and Art, a drama studio, music auditorium and recording studio.
Enjoyment lies at the heart of the Dollar world and the aim is for all pupils to gain the satisfaction that comes from a real commitment. It is just natural in Dollar to take a pride in your work and to do well at it. Our young people also learn how to go beyond their comfort zones. Year on year, levels of attainment are consequently high.
By the end of their time in Dollar, young people will have had a broad education with opportunities to explore widely, as well as the chance to pursue real depth and to excel in their chosen areas. We aim to ensure that each pupil leaves with the best academic qualifications of which he or she is capable - and a good deal more.
On leaving Dollar, many of our pupils go on to study at leading universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews.
