S1 Intake

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
