Short History of Stanley School

The school as we know it now in The Square was opened on 24th June 1878.  Prior to that there was a Mill School then a Free Church School in Russell Street.  The building in Russell Street was converted to make a house for the Headmaster in the early 1880's and remained so until the early 70's when it was sold to the Headmaster at the time - A J Munro (Headmaster 1968-1973)



Listed below are the Headmasters during my time at Stanley School.  If you want to add any more then please let me know.


1936 -1958 - A H Hughes (nicknamed Daddy Hughes) 



1958 - 1968 - R C Beaton 


On 11th August 1947 Stanley Junior Secondary School was established as a result of the raising of the school leaving age to 15. Pupils from  Bankfoot, Caputh, Luncarty and Murthly then attended this secondary school there after completing their primary school education in their home village.  Stanley reverted back to being a Primary School in 1972 and it remains so.
