The Slate Quarries School

This information is taken from Louis Stott’s book‘ Aberfoyle Slate Quarries–fragments of an earlier world’. Initially children from the slate quarry attended Aberfoyle Primary School but were considered to be a disruptive influence. It was therefore decided to establish a separate school which opened 21st September 1894 and continued until 1915. It also seems that the school reopened after the war and continued until at least 1934.

What follows are a series of school related photographs, most of which are undated.
