The Ragged School

ONE of the town’s early schools rejoiced in the somewhat unflattering name of Helensburgh Ragged School.

It was set up in 1851 to meet the needs of parents who could not, or would not, pay the fees of the other schools of the time . . . and it existed and prospered until the building of Clyde Street School early in the 20th century.
