New Starter Information

We always look forward to meeting the new personalities that come through our doors each August. Not being sure what to expect on your first day can be a bit daunting, so we’ve put together some information to help you feel at home here.

Transition Day

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of the pupils joining us today for their virtual transition day. We look forward to welcoming you to Dollar in person after the summer!

School Meals

Our catering staff cook award-winning, healthy, locally-sourced food on site every day. For day pupils, lunch consists of three courses and costs £3.80. There’s also the ‘McNabb and Grab’, our deli bar which is always stocked with fruit, fresh sandwiches and wraps. Pupils are welcome to bring packed lunches to eat in our dining hall. Pupils in the senior school are also allowed to buy lunch in the village.

Our boarders each get breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining hall from Monday – Friday. In addition a snack after school and a light supper around 8pm are provided in each boarding house. On Saturdays and Sundays, breakfast and an evening meal are provided in the houses with brunch served in the dining hall.

Nursing Staff

Our nurses are on hand during term time to attend to the health needs of any pupil or staff member. Based in our dedicated and well-resourced Nursing Centre, Mrs Dunnet and Miss Finnie provide health screening, medical examinations and vaccination programmes in line with National School Health Service guidelines. They also help teach health related topics in the School’s PSE programme.
