Maryhill to get a new primary school after cross-party backing for community plan

Site chosen on Kelvinside Avenue following consultation with the community launched last October.

A new primary school is to be built in Maryhill after receiving cross-party support.

The non-demonational school will also include community sports facilities.

It will be built on the site of the former North Kelvinside Secondary School on Kelvinside Avenue.

The proposals agreed today (Thursday March 2) include a review of catchment areas for schools in greater Maryhill area.

It follows an extensive consultation announced in October last year.

A demographic study and options appraisal were carried out by council officers.

According to the council, the chosen site ticks all the boxes for early years, primary and community facilities.

Bailie Liz Cameron, executive member for children, young people & lifelong learning, said the new school would be an asset for the whole community.

She said: “It’s wonderful to be witnessing the resurgence and regeneration of Maryhill and as a result the need for additional primary school places.

“We are delighted to be able to put forward our proposal to build a new primary school with a nursery and community sports facilities that will be a great asset to the local community at the top of Queen Margaret Drive following the extensive consultation and engagement process.”
