Kirklandpark School was opened in October 1978. It is situated in parkland on the outskirts of the market town of Strathaven. We have a very large amenity ground adjacent to the school, which we use for sports and games.
The design of the building is semi-open plan. It is also open in the sense that parents and members of the community are welcome to visit at any time.
Our school is progressive in outlook and open minded, in so far as up to date educational thinking and practice are concerned, yet retains an emphasis on the solid grounding that is the hallmark of traditional Scottish Education. Pride is taken in the fact that we provide a suitable and challenging curriculum for all, thus ensuring that every child fulfils their potential and ambitions.
All staff, janitor, cleaners, auxiliaries, teachers and the head teacher are here for the benefit of all the children.
