How to Apply

At the Edinburgh Academy we aim to make the Admissions process as smooth and welcoming as possible.

As a school catering for boys and girls aged 2–18, we have three main stages: Nursery, Junior School (P1–6) and Senior School (Geits/P7–7ths/S6).

Our main entry points are Nursery, Primary 1, Geits (P7), Seconds (S1), 4ths (S3) 6ths (S5) and 7ths (S6). Where space is available we can accommodate at other entry points.

Entry is selective, although as a family school, we cater for a wide range of abilities and educational needs. We aim to help all our pupils to achieve their academic potential whilst developing into fully rounded and confident individuals.

In Nursery, places are allocated by date of application. In Junior and Senior Schools account is taken of academic ability, current siblings in school and other Academy connections.
