St. Mary’s Primary School

The new school at Gauze Road, Kinglass, replaced the 1902 building at the corner of Stewart Avenue and The Bog.  It was designed and constructed by Alison & Hutchison & Partners in 1954 on behalf of the West Lothian Education Authority.  The building has been described as a strong composition unimpaired by a diversity of materials, in the Festival of Britain manner.
