Glencairn Primary School

Glencairn Primary School

Glencairn Primary School is based at New Street in Stevenston, Ayrshire.It serves the town of Stevenston Ayrshire with a nursery for children aged 4 and primary school for children from the ages of 5 to 11.


The school was opened in 1875 as Stevenston Public School and at that time in school history pupils only went to the one school from the ages of 5 - 15.

The school was renamed Glencairn Primary school in 1971 with the opening of Auchenharvie Academy. At this time the school became a Primary School and those of Secondary School age (12+) moved to Auhenharvie Academy. In 1882 a fire was ripped though the old school and subsequently burned part of the main school down.

There is an old part of the building that survived the fire, which the present primary school still uses. Plus the new building has a part of the old wall that surived and was added on to the new building in 1982.
