Wellington School, Ayr
South Ayrshire Council runs most schools in Ayr, with the exception of Wellington School, which is privately run.
Founded in 1836 by the wife of an Ayr schoolmaster, the original school was situated in the Wellington Square, hence the name, and provided education for twelve young ladies. The school moved to the Ayr seafront location in 1923.
The school consists of three impressive turreted B Listed buildings, which are situated in a unique seafront location within a quiet residential part of the town of Ayr. The Senior Department is housed between Carleton Turrets and Craigweil House and the Nursery, Infant and Primary stages are accommodated within Drumley House.
