GO-Ahead Given For New School In North Glasgow

PLANNING permission has been given for a new primary school in Maryhill.

The campus — provisionally called North Kelvinside — will be built on the gravel sports pitches bounded by Queen Margaret Drive, Maryhill Road and Kelvinside Avenue.

Glasgow’s planning applications committee approved the development which the City Council say is required because of “the resurgence, regeneration and rising school roll projections in the greater Maryhill area”.

The building, which will face Queen Margaret Drive, will have 14 classrooms and have capacity for up to 378 pupils.

Facilities will include a multi-purpose hall, flexible teaching spaces and drama stage.

In the grounds there will be a floodlit 11-a-side all-weather pitch and a multi-use games area.

Facilities will be available for community use outwith school hours.
