Transfer from primary to secondary

If your child is transferring from primary to secondary school in August, you will be told the name of the relevant secondary school from your child's primary headteacher.

Transition programmes P7 to S1

Each school will also arrange a transition programme to help pupils through the transfer from primary to secondary education.

School catchment areas

If your child attends a primary school which is not in your catchment area this does not mean they are automatically entitled to attend the associated catchment secondary school.

If you would like your child to continue education at a secondary school outwith your home catchment area, you will need to complete our online form in line with the standard admissions process for secondary schools.
