Oops.. sorry, no idea what happened there it didn’t post my full post.. could anyone who is a jgHS parent give me some feedback on living in the catchment area ? We had been looking at moving possibly to Currie to get a bigger place but we have re thought this now with the school uncertainty. My partner is keen we look at JGHS and the catchment. Completely different life though in a tenement rather than a house, from what I know a studenty area.. if anyone could feedback to me what the area is like for families and community etc I’d be very grateful. Thanks and sorry for the random first post!!
my DP went there in lived in Grange. lots of quiet leafy streets. lots of families live in Sciennes/Marchmont/Causeweyside etc.
close enough to Meadows for parks/playing sports/bbqs etc. close to arthurs seat and new skatepark built there, commonwealth pool also. i think the quality of life for children is excellent in southside. cinemas in tollcross and lothian road, also close to fountainpark for cinema and bowling etc.
most tenements have a shared garden, lots of families with young kids in tenements. we live in Fountainbridge, close to new boroghmuir and there are no student parties or antisocial behaviour where we live
