Schooling Proposal

Aberdeen City Council have issued a consultation document about their plans for primary and secondary schooling in the area following the development of housing in Countesswells. 

The document lays out the Council's proposals for re-zoning school catchment areas with the future development of the Countesswells area.  Aberdeen City Council are encouraging the views of the residents in the area and the document details how that feedback can be given.

The Community Council will be reviewing the document and making comments where appropriate.  Feel free to leave comments for our attention by clicking the "Comments" button below.

The full document can be downloaded from the archive on the right or by clicking this link.  Countesswells Schooling Proposal

The proposal alludes to the re-opening of Braeside Infant School as an interim measure until a new school is built in the Countesswells and there have been concerns that pupils from Airyhall Primary will be moved there.  The Community Council has been assured that no Airyhall pupils will be moved.  It is the intention to use Braeside as an interim location for the children who will be attending the new Countesswells School.
