Non-catchment schools

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.

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.

Placing requests

If you want your child to attend a non catchment school, you can request a non catchment place. This is called making a placing request.

Before making a placing request, you should read our Placing in Schools booklet (PDF).

To submit a placing request into P1 or S1 after the start of the school year, and for all other stages, contact the school in writing. The Head Teacher will check the roll/class composition and establish if there is a place.
