The City of Edinburgh is divided into catchment areas (please see map below for Carrick Knowe Primary School Catchment). Every household in Edinburgh has a catchment area associated with it, where you would be given priority admission.

Please note that although we may be your nearest school you might not be in our catchment area. However the Council are happy to consider your application and if possible accommodate your child – please see application attached at the bottom of this page.

You register your child for Primary 1 in the November before the year your child is due to start school.  Late registrations are accepted but will be subject to the availability of places.

More information about admissions can be found on the council website by clicking here: 

Alternatively we have provided some key documents including admission forms at the bottom of this page underneath our catchment area map.
