Entry in 2017

If you are considering entry in August 2017, the dates below will be useful in planning your application.

Tour for applicants
Tours of the School can be arranged at any time during term time.  However, for entry in August 2017, you might find it might most useful to book an appointment during the Autumn of 2016.  This will allow you to view the School, and ask any questions that you may have, in plenty of time before the deadline for applications. 

Please contact Head of Admissions, Alex McGrory, at
admissions@highschoolofdundee.org.uk to book an appointment.

Applications for L1
Candidates for L1 are asked to attend an individual School Readiness Assessment in January 2017, and we aim to give you our decision by the end of February / early March. This lasts around twenty minutes, and is carried out on a one-to-one basis by a senior member of staff. It is advisable to submit your application before the end of the Autumn term.  If the year group is oversubscribed, applications submitted after 15 December 2016 may not be considered until the initial allocation of places is complete.

Applications for L2 - F1
Assessments for these year groups will be held in January 2017 and we aim to give you our decision by the end of February / early March. Applications should be submitted no later than 15 December 2016, but earlier application is strongly advised. If any year groups are oversubscribed, applications submitted after 15 December may not be considered until the initial allocation of places is complete.

Applications for F2-F6
Applicants for the upper years of the Senior School (F2 - F6) will be assessed in January 2017 and we aim to give you our decision by the end of February / early March. Applications, together with subject choices, should ideally be submitted by 15 December 2016 to allow sufficient time to set a date for assessment before the end of session.

Applications for Bursary support
Bursary funding is available to applicants for entry to L6 and L7 in the Junior School and from Form 1 in the Senior School. It is granted on the basis of academic ability and financial need. Bursary applications for entry in 2017 should be submitted by 15 December 2016, and late applications will only be considered if sufficient funds remain.
