Any abandoned Schools?

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and fairly new to Glasgow and am interested in finding some cool sites to explore.

Does anyone know of any old school buildings that are completely abandoned? I have wanted to find one for ages.

Cheers,
Stuball

There is quite a few of them around the city but we can't really advertise them publicly on a forum, especially if you intend on entering any of them.

to UG anyway

Dont know if it will help but two I know are London Rd school Parkhead and Dalmarnock School bridgeton.

Welcome to Urban Glasgow

I am sure if you look you will find lots but as Stu said it wouldn't be appropriate to signpost on here or actively encourage anyone to risk their own Health and Safety by entering buildings which may not he safe.

Golfhill Primary School in Dennistoun is no longer used due to subsidence.  Apparently the entire building is listing to the side - the last time I was in (when it was still open; haven't been in since it closed), parts of the ceilings had netting up to catch any possible falling masonry.

Maybe not the best place for a scout, but it's there all the same.  The janitor/caretaker (I think) still lives on the grounds; there's a wee house in the playground that is in use.

It was about 3 years ago Cybers

We also got lots of photos of Ruchazie PS before it was empty and now demolished.

I did try to get a team together to document the many empty school but didn't get any volunteers.

Could still try this if anyone was up for it

I'd be up for this, and with my youngest starting school this year I'll have more availability during the week.

Broomloan road school, yellow and red sandstone buildings.
Stuball

Hasn't the yellow stone one been demolished after a recent fire?

Golfhill Primary School, Circus Drive

These were taken inside the abandoned Golfhill school today (there from 1968 to 1975). Legally I might add!





cybers

Nice one ... Part of the demo team ?
BigBad

It's listed I think...my brother's a property developer and was inspecting the school with a view to possibly redeveloping the site!
