Apply for a Roman Catholic catchment school place form

This form is for applying for a place in your catchment Roman Catholic school in P1 or S1 starting in August 2021

If you are applying for P1 and you live in the City of Edinburgh Council area you must register your child for P1. You should only complete this form for P1 children if you want to tell us about exceptional reasons for requesting a place which will be considered in the event the school is oversubscribed.
