The school is fully equipped for disabled access.The school has been completely re-developed as part of East Lothian Council’s Private and Public Partnership Scheme, offering outstanding facilities for staff and students.The current roll of the school is 1006.

I am honoured and proud to be Headteacher of Dunbar Grammar and to serve the Dunbar and surrounding communities.

We are very keen to be open and transparent in everything we do and to welcome the active participation of all communities associated with the school.  If interested in getting more actively involved with the school,  please contact me or the School Council.

If you simply wish to follow our progress and influence the decision making process from the comfort of your home, please log on regularly to our web-site which is going from strength to strength.

All parents and carers who have given us an up-to-date e-mail address will receive a weekly news update with various links.  If you do not receive an e-mail every Friday please ask your son or daughter to hand in an updated version of your e-mail address to the school office. If you do not wish to receive the weekly update then simply contact our school office.

Hard copies of letters and news items can also be collected from the school office.  If you are not a parent but would like to be put on the e-mailing list please contact the school office in the first place.
