Welcome to this term’s Banter- enjoy!
If this post appears on the website, then I am delighted to say that we are back up and running completely after extended log-in issues. (The problem being that we couldn’t!)
Our KGS Twitter feed has kept some continuity down the left hand side of the screen but we appear to be fully back in business and ready to roll!
Tomorrow I will try to upload the end of term Banter. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.

On Monday 25 March S1/2 students were given details about next session’s Outward Bound Trip.
This is a fantastic opportunity to experience a range of adventurous activities with all equipment supplied and costs subsidised by a local family trust and Outward Bound Trust sponsorship.
There is also a video showing the features and benefits of the trip Learning Away Winter Residentials campaign
We are keen that no student misses out on this opportunity so if you have any queries or concerns please do get in touch. Additional funding is available where this is a barrier to taking part or we can accept a different payment schedule if this would help. Please contact your child’s Guidance Teacher or the Rector if you want to discuss this.
If any local business would like to support this opportunity by either subsidising the trip further or sponsoring an individual please contact the School Office.
Keith Grammar School is fortunate to be able to offer the opportunity to some of our current S4 pupils to become Career Ready Students over their S5 and S6.
Career Ready UK, is a business led charity, supporting a movement of employers and schools working together to help raise the aspirations of 16 to 19 year olds and bridge the gap between education and work by giving them access to real experience of the world of work. Together we provide an awareness of business that broadens young people’s horizons and helps them decide whether to opt for employment, work-based learning (such as apprenticeships or school leaver programmes) or higher education.
Selected students follow a programme of mentoring, masterclasses, workplace visits and a four week paid internship.
S4 pupils have been informed about this opportunity in PSE and those meeting the selection criteria who are interested have taken a letter home about an information evening on Tuesday 26th March. If your child has not taken home a letter and you would like them to apply for this opportunity please contact their Guidance Teacher.
To be eligible to apply for this programme students must meet the following criteria:
