Tuesday 22nd December 2020 Update

Following the First Ministers announcements on Saturday 19th December, and the National mainland return to Tier 4, East Lothian Active Schools has postponed the return of Outdoor Activity until after a review on Wednesday 20th January.

This decision covers all East Lothian Active Schools activity.

With a staggered return to schools in the New Year, and uncertainty over what Tier we will be living under in January, we thought it best to provide some clarity on our plans.

Our team will be working to support schools in their return to learning after the Festive Holidays.

We will also be planning for a return to activity in February, assuming we have reverted to Tier 3 or lower by then.

We know this will be disappointing, we are disappointed too.

We will be working hard to return our outdoor activities, as well as planning for a return to indoor activities as soon as we can.

We wish you all a fun and safe Christmas and New Year.

Best wishes.

Mark Urwin
Senior Active Schools Co-ordinator


Effort Brings Rewards!

Dunbar Active Schools are striving to have a Dunbar where sport and physical activity is a way of life, and in everything we do, we act in the best interests of sport and physical activity in Dunbar to make sure everyone has that opportunity to take part and have fun.

We may be the smallest secondary school in East Lothian but we certainly punch above our weight when it comes to giving our students the opportunities to participate, compete and be a part of something worthwhile, rewarding and just importantly lifelong.

We couldn’t do this if it wasn’t for our healthy links with local sports clubs and volunteers, which stimulates current activities and develops new opportunities for even more of our students. 

Our Dunbar Grammar pupils are currently enjoying a thriving sports programme with competitive teams in Rugby, Hockey, Basketball, Netball, football, cheerleading, badminton as well as access to volleyball and table tennis.

Dunbar Grammar now runs a thriving 'School of Rugby' programme. Linking closely with Dunbar Rugby Club, we field teams for boys from S1 to S6. The 'School of Rugby' also offers additional skills and physical development support for all of our rugby players.

Dunbar is a hotbed of sport and by linking with the local community sports hub, we enjoy close links with Dunbar Rugby Club, Hockey Club, Football Club, tennis club, cricket club and both West Barnes and Dunbar Bowling Club’s. We look forward to building more links in the future!!!

To download our most up to date extra curricular schedule and links to our latest weekend rugby and hockey fixtures please visit DGS Sport website.


At Active Schools we are always looking to promote opportunities for our Volunteers and Coaches to access training courses.
