About the role


Fully co-educational day and boarding school for 5-18 since 1818.

The Governors of Dollar Academy Trust invite applications for the post of Rector. 

 This is a unique opportunity for a visionary leader to build on the successes of this sector-leading school and maintain its position at the forefront of Scottish education, adapting and responding to a rapidly changing social, political and educational environment.

The school has flourished under its current excellent leadership; pupil numbers and academic results are at a record high, and it is fitting that in its bicentenary year the school was named Sunday Times Scottish Independent Secondary School of the Year 2018.

Dollar provides an outstanding all-round educational experience for pupils in a supportive and nurturing environment, and the Governors are seeking to appoint an individual who can not only sustain, but develop this, and who demonstrates a willingness to embrace and lead innovation, to ensure that our educational offering continues to be relevant and empowering to young people in a fast-changing world.

You will be an energetic, team-focused leader, with first-class strategic skills, strong intellectual abilities and a substantial track record of senior leadership. You will work with a high calibre and committed senior leadership team and engage the entire school community in the continued pursuit of excellence.
