School Catchments - Scotland

Scottish local authorities usually divide towns and country areas into catchments and children living in a catchment area will usually go to the same local school. Domestic properties typically have a catchment area for each of their local: - primary non-denominational (PN), - secondary non-denominational (SN), - primary denominational / Catholic (PD) and - secondary denominational / Catholic (SD) schools.

This dataset contains four separate layers (representing those above categories), which we deliver together as one single web service or zip folder.

These data layers do not contain the catchment areas for Jordanhill primary and secondary school which is located in west Glasgow. This is because it is a Scottish Government-funded school.

This dataset was amalgamated, optimised and published by the Spatial hub. The following quality assurance checks and corrections are carried out on the data: Polygons are dissolved/ aggregated by key name and local authority. The minimum polygon area allowed in the data is 100 square metres Checks for invalid geometry types The maximum angle for any spikes is 3 degrees Any duplicate geometry is removed from the data Duplicate key names for polygons are not removed Polygons with no key names are not removed Checks for basic geometry i.e. self-intersection a polygon overlaps a local authority boundary (or any other input data) by up to 5m we will snap this to the boundary. Where a polygon has a gap of 5m to a local authority boundary (or any other input data) we will snap this to the boundary. All corrections and issues are captured and communicated via Quality Assurance report maps. Please contact for more details.
