Find your catchment school
Catchment area maps
Every household in Edinburgh has a catchment area. The catchment area decides at which schools you will be given a priority place. Going to a nearby school or nursery class or one which works with the school does not give you a priority place.
Find which schools are in your catchment area by using our interactive catchment map below.
Check what the catchment areas are for each school by downloading catchment maps below.
Your nearest school may not be your catchment school.
Most addresses have four catchment schools
- non-denominational (ND) primary school
- non-denominational secondary school
- Roman Catholic (RC) primary school
