History of the School

P1030337Dunedin School is a small independent school providing education for young people experiencing a range of social and emotional difficulties.

The school was established as The Dunedin Co-operative in 1979 and operated out of Millar Hall. In 2000, the school became a Company Limited by Guarantee, and a registered charity in Scotland.

A period of planning and fundraising followed and in 2007, the school moved into Liberton Bank House, a building of historical and literary importance, after it had been renovated and adapted to our purposes.

The refurbishment of Liberton Bank House as the new Dunedin School was made possible by many generous donations from many supporters. We have created a fully functioning school for 21 pupils with individual needs. We now have 5 teaching rooms which incorporate space for home economics, IT, sciences, library, art, languages, music, history, geography and a whole range of other activities. In addition we have an administrative space, secure storage and a garden that is becoming a tremendous teaching and learning resource.
