Jordanhill School, 45 Chamberlain Road, Glasgow, G13 1SP

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 541682



Founded in 1920, it was formerly run by Jordanhill College of Education as its demonstration school, and was previously known as Jordanhill College School.
The school has a unique status. It is now funded by a direct grant from the Scottish Executive, and is neither a local authority school, nor is it a private or independent school.
The school motto is 'AD SUMMA NITOR' (Strive for the Highest).
