Stirling

New to Stirling’s Doors Open Days! St

Mary’s Episcopal Primary School has

been on its present site since 1850. When

it was founded, there was no welfare

state and Churches were left to fill the educational gaps as best they

could and Henry Malcolm of St Mary’s Episcopal Church expressed a

fervent wish that the church should fund a school for poor children in

the parish. The ground was gifted by Kippendavie Estate.

During the Second World War the school building was used by the

army and the school was decanted. While not a Listed Building, the

school is in the Dunblane Conservation Area and it is historically

significant as the first self-governing primary school in Scotland. In April

2003 St. Mary’s returned to local authority control.

Tours will be given round the school.

Disabled access.
