You can apply for your child to be placed in a school outside your catchment area (a placing request). We will try to accommodate your wishes, but it may not possible to send your child to a school other than their catchment one.
18 December 2020 is the deadline for placing requests at non-catchment schools for Primary 1 and Secondary 1, for starting in August 2021.
If your child is already attending school and you want to move them to another school, please contact the school you would like your child to move to.
Before making a placing request you should read our Placing in Schools booklet (PDF).

Registering after the start of the school year
To register a pupil into P1 or S1 after the start of the school year, and at all other stages, contact the school in writing. The Head Teacher will check the roll/class composition and establish if there is a place.
This applies to both catchment and non-catchment schools.
