Davie Street Primary School

School since 1875

This school in Davie Street was built in 1875.  The inscription, high on the wall reads: 'George Heriot Hospital School'.  The school later became Davie Street Primary School.

The old school has now been converted to housing, creating 11 apartments, most with one bedroom.  The development is known as 'Primary One, Davie Street.'
