Garrowhill Primary School plans submitted
A planning application has been made for the complete rebuild of Garrowhill Primary School in Glasgow’s east end to improve facilities and provide a new early year’s centre.

Designed in-house by Glasgow City Council the £10.6m school will replace the existing collection of disparate buildings with one unified structure, slightly reduced in scale from 581to 459 to reflect a falling school roll.

A 48 space early learning centre will also be built.

This will entail demolition of the existing 1939 school which sits at the heart of an inter war speculative ‘garden estate’ of two storey brick and render detached housing.

Built from buff facing brick, timber cladding and coloured precast concrete the new school will occupy a plot adjacent to Garrowhill Park and will incorporate new playing fields.
An existing outdoor teaching space will be retained

The new build will be two storeys in height and hidden by a landscaped buffer to respect the surrounding residential neighbourhood

It is looks good and I am sure the facilities will be fantastic, but being born and bred in Garrowhill the school is very quaint and an excellent example of interwar architechure-I will be sad to see it go.

I am sad to see the old school go, but realise it no longer facilitates the modern teaching methods. However I hope the mature trees encompass the landscaping.

Glad to see new school for the children of Garrowhill however a bit concerned about the playing fields which will be open to the public.
