    50s/60s Classroom

    Our 50s and 60s classroom is quite different from our Second World War classroom. The floor is now flat, the walls are a bright colour and the children sit at individual desks. This will take some visitors back to their childhoods!

Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed the room and the fitted furniture including the dresser you can see today. Girls between the ages of 12 and 14 learned cookery in this room as part of their housekeeping instruction lessons.
