Schools and catchment or 'designated' areas

School catchment areas

Find your catchment area

Use our Schools designated areas map to find out which designated or 'catchment' area you live in (or to find the designated area of a particular school). Search for an address or postcode using the text box or a location on the map using the 'set location' map pin.

Contact our admission team for full details of nearest local schools and refer to our school admissions pages for admissions guides.

Designated or 'catchment' areas

Most schools have a designated or 'catchment' area which is an integral part of their over-subscription criteria and is used when considering school place offers. However parents can apply for places at any school suitable for their child even if they do not live in this designated area.

The following school do not have designated areas

Contact these schools directly for information about their admissions criteria:

  • Floreat Montague Park primary School
  • St Teresa’s Catholic primary School
  • St Dominic Savio Catholic primary School
  • Beechwood primary School
  • Forest Secondary School

Oakbank Secondary School and Aldergrove Primary School - these schools have newly designated areas. Contact these schools directly if you believe you live within their designated areas.

Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of this information the Council hold on catchment areas, anomalies do exist. You are advised to discuss your full details with a member of the school admissions team before carrying out any action as a result of search findings.
