As the world’s oldest co-educational day and boarding school, Dollar has served the educational needs of its pupils for over two centuries. The Care Inspectorate has described the school as having a ‘sector-leading’ standard of care for its boarders - this is a successful school filled with happy and very active children.

“Up there with the best…set in a beautiful tranquil setting” The Good Schools Guide 2020

Dollar is recognised as one of the UK’s leading independent schools and has a very sound reputation amongst the UK’s top universities. The school offers the widest range of academic subjects in Scotland, complimented by over 70 co-curricular activities. It has an excellent reputation for sport, music and art in particular.

Around 90 boys and girls live in three small family-style boarding houses located on Dollar’s stunning 70-acre campus at the foot of the Ochil Hills. Tutors help with homework and excellent social, sport and leisure facilities are available for pupils to use.

One great advantage of boarding at Dollar is that there are several hundred day pupils living locally, so boarders have a wide circle of friends, both in and out of the boarding house. Located between the university cities of St Andrews and Edinburgh, Dollar is less than an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow, with dozens of direct flights each day to London and across the globe

Dollar is conveniently located 45 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, which has daily Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways flights direct to Doha and Abu Dhabi, and 60 minutes from Glasgow Airport, which has twice-daily Emirate Airlines flights direct to Dubai.
