  1. Ferguslie Primary School UPDATED

  2. Ferguslie Primary School UPDATED

    Ferguslie Primary School. (Updated with facts) There is a lot of conflicting stories regarding the name(s) of the old school. Here is what I believe to be true..... Built in 1882, Ferguslie Primary School, sat on Paisley's McKenzie Street and was one of the most beautiful schools ever to be built. On Monday 4th September 1882, the new school opened its doors to over 600 pupils. An article from the Paisley and Renfrewshire Gazette puts the cost of the Victorian building at £10,099, with a Mr Coats gifting £1000. The rest of the money came from a Government grant and The Public Works Loan Board. Rennison and Scott were the famous architects of the school. http://www.scottisharchitects.org.uk/architect_full.php?id=202945 One week before the school was due to open, tile- layer Mr David Isdale, from Glasgow, fell from the belfry to the ground and died. Around 1974 the school, closed due to structural defects and subsidence, and the pupils were transferred to the old Oakshaw High school. Alas on the 20th of December 1978, vandals set fire to the Ferguslie Park School and despite the efforts of some 30 fire fighters, the school was destroyed and was demolished. The listed Victorian building with its architectural features was lost. The only remaining evidence of the School today is the low Wall bordering the pavement. It's amazing how wrong some information can be on the world wide web. Loads of misinformation and incomplete facts. I was genuinely trying to put together some facts about the old Ferguslie Primary School, to share to anyone who is interested in old buildings, old Paisley/Ferguslie, or indeed like me, my old school. I found it almost impossible to corroborate any evidence found. I have found NO evidence to say the school was ever called Craigielea Primary, just the fact that it's in that area. I will continue to dig deep and am currently looking through old Paisley and Renfrewshire Gazette newspapers from 1882. If anyone can add to the facts, or memory's, please share, leave a wee comment or just like.
