Site Management (24 July 2009)

3-storey rectangular-plan school with fine interior. Squared and snecked bull-faced red sandstone. Deep base course, ashlar cill course to 1st floor, cill courses to upper floors, eaves cornice. Piended roof.

Although externally plain and unassuming the former Queen Mary Street Public School has an exceptionally good interior. It is located in an area which has seen comprehensive change over the last 50 years. A fine example of the work of Boucher & Higgins. Historic photographs in the Mitchell Library show that the upper floor of the E elevation was originally without windows and inscribed 'Queen Mary Street Public School'. The oculi windows in the central hall (now with square glazing) originally had decorative ironwork infills. (Historic Scotland)
