Bearsden Primary is a co-educational, non-denominational school which is situated in Bearsden, a small town to the north west of Glasgow. The school was built in 1911 and is a traditional sandstone building, on two levels, with a central hall and closed classrooms. There are facilities to accommodate children with disabilities within the school. A gym hall and a cafeteria are situated in an annexe in the playground.  The catchment area consists mainly of private housing.  

Parents are highly committed to supporting the school community. The Parent Council work cooperatively with the school and meet regularly. There is also a very active Fundraising Group which organises social and fundraising events throughout the year. Parent helpers are welcome and frequently assist with classroom activities and school outings. There are a large number of extra-curricular activities including football, cross country running, guitar, skipping, skiing, enjoy-a-ball, table tennis and netball.  Pupil participation is encouraged through the Pupil Council, the ECO Committee, Rights Respecting Schools Committee, Playground Buddies and many more- we have up to 20 different committees. 

Bearsden Primary After School Club caters for children before school and from 3p.m. until 5.55p.m. each day.   

The school supports a number of fund raising events for local, national and international charities throughout the year. There are very good links with the shops and businesses in the local community and well established links with local early years establishments, primary schools and Bearsden Academy.  

Bearsden Primary School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in a stimulating and caring environment. Pupils are helped to become responsible citizens, confident individuals, successful learners and effective contributors to society. Great importance is attached to good manners, self-discipline and developing positive attitudes. The individual needs of children are catered for and equal opportunities are offered to all.
