What happens at Open Morning?

Following a brief overview of the School, your family will be paired with one of our pupils who will take you on a tour of the classrooms and facilities, with the chance to experience activities, displays and exhibits in every department. There will be lots of opportunities to talk to staff and pupils and to ask them questions about life at the High School.

At the end of your tour, we invite you to enjoy refreshments and tasty snacks in our Taster Cafe, where staff will also be on hand to answer any remaining questions that you may have about everything from pastoral care to our High Performance Sport Programme.

Bursary support towards places at the School may be available and early applications are always advised. Our Bursar is on hand during Open Morning to answer any queries you may have. For more information about Financial Assistance at the High School of Dundee please click here.
