About The School Banner Image

Visit us

You can be sure of a warm welcome from the whole school community.

We recognise that choosing the right school for your child can feel daunting, and that's why we warmly invite you to sample the School for yourself. A visit to the School will allow you to picture if this is the right environment for your child and a place in which they can thrive.

Book a tour or a taster day and get a feel for our inspiring, all-round education and the welcoming environment in which it takes place.  

For more information about how to join us, please contact the Admissions Team.
We'll always be in touch with you promptly after you contact us. Please be sure to add admissions@highschoolofdundee.org.uk to your email whitelist/safe-senders list to ensure our reply reaches you. If you haven't heard from us, please check your junk/spam folders.

Individual Tours

Individual tours of the Junior and Senior Years can be arranged for your family during term-time. A member of staff will accompany you on a tour of classrooms and key departments and answer any questions that you may have allowing you to build a picture of our normal working day and witness first-hand the interaction between teachers and pupils.

‘Our son has blossomed since arriving at HSD. His taster day was, in his words, “100% better” than the school he was attending at that time because he felt valued and respected by both his peers and the teachers.’

Taster Days

Individual Taster Days in our Junior and Senior Years can be arranged during term time. This provides your child with an opportunity to spend time following their buddy's timetable for the day. Where possible we tailor the day to suit your child's interests and they are paired with a similar buddy.

Virtual Open Morning

Our Open Mornings give you the chance to tour the school, meet pupils and staff, take part in activities and ask any questions you might have. Normally, we hold Open Mornings on a Saturday in September and March, with any further events announced on the website and advertised in the local press.

We're doing everything we can to keep our pupils, our staff and our wider school community safe during the Covid pandemic, so currently our Open Mornings are Virtual events, giving you the chance to tour the school, hear from pupils, staff and parents, and ask any questions you might have, remotely.  

And don't forget, if you miss our virtual events, we'd be delighted to welcome you for a tour of the school or a Taster Day on another day.

If you have any questions about applying for a place, or if you require any further information, our admissions team is always delighted to help.
