Hi ladies,

Sorry for yet another which school? thread. Looks like we will be moving to Edinburgh this summer. Just came back from there, such a beautiful city - quite excited about the whole thing. Anyway DH and I are debating. I think we should live in the Sciennes - Gillespies (secondary) catchment but he has his heart in the city centre which will be St Mary's - St Thomas. For various reasons, we want to buy before we move. Any opinions on these schools? We are not Catholic but don't have any issues with denominational schools.

Thanks for your help!

Catholic schools v oversubscribed this year. Check if you need baptism certificates.

Thanks Moomish. St Mary's has space for us theoretically but can't offer us a space until we have an address. Very daunting ...
