Hutchesons’ Grammar School, 21 Beaton Road, Glasgow G41 4 NW

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 570627



The history of Hutchesons' Grammar School sheds light on the history of Glasgow over the past 360 years. When George and Thomas Hutcheson set aside money in 1641 for their school, they lit an educational torch which has been burning brightly ever since.
George Hutcheson's drive to build a school to benefit children came from his unfulfilled desire to be a father. The brothers originally intended the School to be for orphans. Archibald Edmiston, an orphan himself, became the School's first pupil in 1643. The stone built Hutchesons' Hospital building in the Trongate - in the heart of Glasgow - survived the devastating fire that destroyed so much of the city in 1652. It survived, too, the ravages of civil war in Oliver Cromwell's reign before peace - and the monarchy - was restored. . . . .
A site on Beaton Road in Crossmyloof became home to Hutchesons' Boys' Grammar School in 1960. It was seen then as an extremely fashionable building, daring in its modernity. Despite these many changes to the schools over the centuries, the single most significant change occurred in 1976. The year marked the amalgamation of Hutchesons' Girls' Grammar School and Hutchesons' Boys' Grammar School to form Hutchesons' Grammar School, the co-educational institution which remains in this form today. For more information log on to www.hutchesons.org

The very impressive WW1 & WW2 Memorial is situated in the corridor adjacent to the school Library.







In the following photograph taken in May 1939 twenty six of the pupils were killed in service



I would like to thank Mrs Norman and Mrs Duncan for all their help and for allowing me to reproduce the Veritas edition 1995.
