Date: 

Thursday, 28 November, 2019


The Council has published the consultation reports on the secondary transfer arrangements for children who live in the catchment areas of Craighead and Lennoxtown Primary Schools.

Parties interested in the consultation now have three weeks to view the consultation reports, voice concerns, and approach and lobby the councillors who will be deciding on the proposals at a Special Meeting of the Council on 19 December.

The Council launched the consultation on Monday 9 September, asking a range of stakeholders to share their views on the following proposals:

  • children, who live in the catchment area of Craighead Primary in Milton of Campsie should be zoned to Kirkintilloch High School as a non-denominational secondary school within East Dunbartonshire; this would be in addition to the current options of Kilsyth Academy, in North Lanarkshire and St Ninian’s High School in East Dunbartonshire.
  • children, who live in the catchment area of Lennoxtown Primary in Lennoxtown should be zoned to Lenzie Academy as a non-denominational secondary school within East Dunbartonshire; this would be in addition to the current options of Kilsyth Academy, in North Lanarkshire and St Ninian’s High School in East Dunbartonshire. 

Consultees were invited to complete an online survey and two public meetings were held.

Joint Council Leader, Councillor Andrew Polson said, "I would like to thank everyone who took the time to complete the consultation for sharing their views.  I would urge interested parties to now review the consultation reports which are available on the Council website."

Joint Council Leader, Councillor Vaughan Moody, added, “Stakeholders now have the opportunity to digest the contents of the consultation reports and speak to their local Councillors about any issues prior to the Special Meeting of the Council on Thursday 19 December.”
