We don’t consider our offering unique simply because we’ve been operating for such a long time. The 200 years we’ve been in existence has, however, given us ample time to build a first rate learning environment that makes us one of Scotland’s largest and best performing independent schools.
At Dollar, the focus is on positive encouragement of individual talents, interests and ambitions. It’s this approach and well-rounded culture that drives the ever-impressive performance of our pupils. After all, a happy child makes a better student than an unhappy one. This simple fact is why the enjoyment of learning is so important here. A high quality education is about far more than our academic reputation. It’s about enabling pupils to step up to the mark and helping them achieve not only in the classroom but beyond it too.
Dollar benefits from a picturesque setting in wide green spaces at the foot of the Ochil Hills, yet lies within easy reach of major cities in Central Scotland. Edinburgh and Glasgow, with their international airports, rail and road links, are less than an hour away.
One of our Advanced Higher Geography pupils has created a website which constantly updates both the current and past weather conditions from the roof of the Playfair Building. To see today’s readings, click here.
