Keig School and its Environment
Keig Primary School is situated in the village of Keig, which lies approximately twenty miles to the west of Aberdeen and four miles from the town of Alford.
The school enjoys an attractive, quiet rural setting with a panoramic view over the Don Valley and hills of Donside. Pupils attend school from the village of Keig and surrounding area. The exact catchment area is shown on the enclosed map.
Keig is a Primary School catering for pupils aged 5 – 12 years. At present there are two classes and 31 children. Pupils transfer to Alford Academy at the end of Primary 7. Pre – school groups meet in the school hall five mornings a week. Local Authority nursery provision is also available within the Alford catchment area.
Keig School is an attractive, traditional granite building, having been renovated in the 1960s. There are two large, bright classrooms. A large hall and stage is used extensively by both the school and the local community. A partition closes off the stage, which is used as a dining room. Weekly assemblies also take place in the stage area. A library area, kitchen servery, community kitchen, staffroom/office, toilets and storage cupboards make up the remainder of the accommodation.
Outdoors the children can enjoy a large tarred playground at the front of the school and a grassed playing field at the rear. The playing field is bordered by trees with swings and climbing apparatus. A netball court is marked on the playground.
