Although it is usual for children to attend their local catchment area school, parents/carers have the right to request that their children be placed in a different secondary school. This is called a Placing Request. Education Authorities have a duty to grant placing requests wherever possible. We will try to grant your request, provided there are places at the school which you choose. Where the demand for places exceeds the number of available places in a secondary school it is not always possible to grant all such placing requests.
Placing requests for any school should be made online.
If your child currently attends a Primary School outwith Dundee and you wish them to attend a Dundee Secondary School you are required to submit a placing request regardless of your home address.
If you cannot make the request online you will need to Contact Us.
All Placing Requests must be made between Monday 5 December 2022 and Monday 6 February 2023.
