Our thoughts continue to be with the families and loved ones of those directly affected by coronavirus and we continue to be immensely grateful to our NHS and other frontline health, social care and emergency services heroes, who are working round the clock to keep us all safe.

17/03/2020

In line with the government’s advice on reducing social contact, Glasgow Life has taken the difficult decision to suspend all services from this evening. This will apply to every Glasgow Life venue across the city which will shut from close of play on Tuesday 17 March. We expect the suspension to continue until the end of April.

Glasgow Life already offers a range of online resources for people to use, and we are intending to extend these services as soon as possible.

All Glasgow Sport activities will be suspended, including indoor and outdoor activities as well as the outreach programme. Glasgow Club membership fees will be automatically frozen (we will do this, you do not need to contact us). Museums, concert halls and libraries will close. Community facilities will close to the public and we will contact tenants to discuss access. We will prioritise how we continue to deliver our targeted essential services.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and disruption this will cause. Further updates will be posted here as soon as they are available: https://bit.ly/2QmB5I7

Our Story

Scotland Street School Museum is a museum of school education in Glasgow, Scotland, in the district of Tradeston. It is located in a former school built by Charles Rennie Mackintosh between 1903 and 1906. The building is one of Glasgow's foremost architectural attractions. It is located next to the Shields Road subway station. During the building's construction, Mackintosh frequently battled the school board about the design (the board wanted a less expensive design). The total cost for the building was £34,291, which was over budget. The building features a pair of windowed Scottish baronial style tower staircases. The school, which also served Tradeston, was designed for an enrolment of 1,250. However, by the 1970s the area was experiencing urban decay, and the school's enrolment fell to under 100. The school closed in 1979. Mackintosh based the design of the school on Rowallan Castle in Ayrshire and Falkland Palace. This building was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and offers a fascinating glimpse into schooldays of the past.

Yesterday I took my kids to the Scotland Street School Museum in Glasgow. Kids loved it. I however had different feelings. Everywhere there were stories of kids time at the school. Many were heart-warming, fond even. I enjoyed getting my picture taken wearing the dunces cap and looking at all the lovely Rennie Mackintosh design of the place. But where were the Tawse? I eventually found a belt in a glass case hidden away in an out of sight area, and the word Tawse was not even mentioned. Why is this? My mother was a Dux medal winner at school, she enjoyed her time at school, but my experience was different. I struggled in class and failed to conform. I was given three of the best regularly. Once I found an unlit match on the school bus. Thinking I was doing the safe thing, I struck it and immediately blew it out. For this I was given three of the belt. One instance among many. If I'd designed a school museum the Tawse would be there as you walked in the door.
My Mother and her twin sister, Margaret ( Maude) and Andrewina ( Ina) attended this school from about 1910. I believe their home was very close by at 248 Scotland Street. I visited the school in 2007, it was a wonderful feeling to walk where they would have walked.
Hi do you have a carpark? Thanks :)
Great place to go and get some history
