History of The Glasgow Academy. On 8th May 1845, a number of members and ministers of the newly formed Free Church of Scotland met at the Star Hotel in George Square in order to discuss the extension of the church’s activities into the sphere of education. It was decided that they would build an “academic institution”. The original minutes of this meeting show that it had been first proposed that the school should be for “children of the better classes”, but this precise wording was later deleted. It was agreed by all, however, that the school would be established “for the purpose of teaching youth the various branches of secular knowledge, based upon strictly evangelical principles and pervaded by religious instruction”.

The WW2 Memorial is located on the first floor of the main building.
