One way to truly get a feel for the Academy, its approach and the community here is to visit our 70-acre campus for yourself. From the various academic departments to the sports facilities, the grounds to the accommodation – there’s a lot for visitors to take in, but we’re confident that you and your children will like what you see. Contact us to arrange a tour, or view more of the campus on our map or virtual map.
Dollar Academy's 360 VR Tour
Situated in the heart of the Playfair Building, the Library provides our pupils with a calm and inspiring place for independent study, reading lessons and co-curricular clubs. It houses over 9,000 fiction and non-fiction books, alongside daily newspapers, magazines, an eBook and audiobook library and digital subscriptions, such as JSTOR and the TLS.
Sport is a big part of life here at Dollar. That’s why we have both both grass and all-weather playing surfaces. Meanwhile the Ochil Hills that rise up behind the school offer a fantastic opportunity for pupils to become immersed in the wilderness. Indoor activities are catered for too, of course, and we have a fitness suite, Strength and Conditioning room, swimming pool, rifle range, cricket nets, gym and two sports halls.
A talking point in their own right, the school’s grounds are incredibly photogenic. A beautifully maintained mix of mature trees, gardens and architectural features add to the atmosphere.
All contained within a single campus, we’re hugely fortunate to have such easy access to these features. Not only can pupils travel quickly between lessons, they can easily make the most of what Dollar itself has to offer and the many virtues of the Academy’s surrounding area.
