What Makes Us Special

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.

The Dollar Community Bringing Life to the Academy

Our ethos of “work hard, be kind and get involved” is firmly rooted in every student and member of staff at Dollar. Vibrant, talented and always welcoming, all individuals at Dollar Academy work to create a positive atmosphere where our core values of “excellence, opportunity and community” will thrive.
