Edinburgh schools review - Forrester High School

School Forrester High School
Proposal Forrester High’s catchment area would expand to include the catchment area of Sighthill Primary.
Pupils from Sighthill Primary, who currently go to WHEC, would go to Forrester High from August 2022.
Who is affected No current WHEC High pupils would be affected by this proposal.

Pupils currently in P3 and below and living in the Sighthill Primary catchment area would go to Forrester High when they reach S1.

Pupils currently in P4 to P7 and living in the Sighthill Primary catchment area would continue to go to WHEC when they reach S1 and would move to the new South West Edinburgh High when it opens in 2022.
Reasons for the proposal 17% of secondary age pupils in the Sighthill Primary catchment area already go to Forrester High School.

Forrester High has the capacity to accommodate pupils from Sighthill Primary.
