King David Primary School in Beauclair Drive opened in 1964.  It closed its doors to pupils on 19th July 2011, as the school prepared to move to the new King David Campus on Childwall Rd.  People who had been involved with the schools have sent in photographs and anecdotes to mark the building which is remembered with great fondness.
