Statement of Interest

Built in 1838 to replace the Clandeboye Schoolhouse, which was too small for the parish's needs. The decision to build a new school was taken by the parish Heritors on 9th November 1837, following an offer by a Mr George Brisbane to pay for it. The budget for the building was £450, excluding the cost of the feu. This building remained in use as the parish school until 1876 when the present school, across the road was built.
