Mark McDonald, MSP for Aberdeen Donside recently made a submission to the consultation on the location of the new Stoneywood School, and the extension of the school's catchment area. See below for a brief outline of the submission:
- Support for the catchment zone for Stoneywood School being extended
- Outlined feedback from constituents and highlighted that former Bankhead Academy site may be the best option to pursue as the site had been cleared and previously housed educational facilities. Choosing this site would also prevent any need to decant the school from its current site during any construction process, and would also avoid the loss of community green space which could come in the former Bankhead playing fields were selected.
