Gaelic medium education

Secondary schools appear as red pins in the map below, primary schools as a blue cross. Those including Gaelic nurseries have yellow arrows.

Catchment areas

The Highland Council is in the process of creating Gaelic Medium Catchment Areas for those schools that offer Gaelic Medium education. To see which areas are currently included within our GM catchments click the >> symbol below, then tick the box to show Gaelic Medium School Catchments.

Please note that not all the schools that offer GME have a GM catchment. If you are interested in Gaelic Medium education but your home address is not within a GM catchment, please contact your local Area Education Office: Area education offices | Area education offices | The Highland Council

Gaelic medium education gives children an opportunity to learn Gaelic in the most natural way possible as the language is being absorbed through their learning.
