Moving Victoria Primary School?

(adapted from an email form Robbie Crockett, Acting School Estate Planning Manager)

Aa statutory consultation on a proposal to relocate Victoria Primary School to a new building in the Western Harbour and undertake catchment changes in the Western Harbour and North Leith areas of the city began on 30 January 2017.  The public consultation period will run until 5pm on Friday 17 March 2017.

The proposal in the statutory consultation paper principally affects Victoria Primary School and Trinity Primary School.  The paper also proposes very minor catchment changes for Holy Cross RC Primary School, Trinity Academy and St Thomas of Aquin’s RC High School.
