Which school in Tillicoultry should I position my son/daughter?

  • Your proximity to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You might need to send your child to a specialised school to cater for your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your son/daughter attended a connected nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others decide on a quantity of their pupils on academic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a precise number of spaces on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)
