About the school

Long description: Junior Boarding School
Spanning two age-groups (Junior 1, or P6, and Junior 2, or P7), the Junior School enjoys a unique position within Dollar Academy, forming, as it does, a transitional stage between the Prep and Senior Schools. Three classes at Junior 1 level increase to four in Junior 2 so that the majority of those entering the Senior School have experienced the solid foundations offered throughout Dollar's Primary years. The wide range of activities, both curricular and co-curricular, in which both staff and children are involved, ensures that being part of Junior School life is a vibrant and rewarding experience for all.

Senior School

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.
