You will automatically receive confirmation of your child’s catchment secondary school by the end of November if your child is:

  • in Primary 7
  • living in Midlothian
  • attending a Midlothian primary school

You need do nothing else if you want your child to attend the catchment secondary school.

If, however, your child is living outside of our catchment area and you wish your child to attend Dalkeith High School in S1, more information on placing requests can be found on Midlothian Council’s website: https://www.midlothian.gov.uk/info/879/school_places/145/apply_for_a_non-catchment_school

In the case of all other pupils, from S1 to S6, whether you live in or out of the catchment area, parents should contact the school on 0131 654 4701 and make an appointment to meet Mr S Gordon, Depute Headteacher, to discuss the enrolment of your child.
