Site history notes
In 1903 John G Stein asked the Landward Education Board to consider the provision of a new school for his workforce which was dramatically increasing and for which he was building housing. The school was built at the junction of Broomhill Road and Church Street adjacent to the Co-operative shop and opened 12th August 1913 with 72 pupils. Miss Mary Knowles was the first head teacher. For the first 12 years it catered for all congregations, but when St Joseph's RC School opened in 1925 some 34 pupils transferred to it.
Following a reorganisation of Educational provision in 1947 all the children in Broomhill and High Bonnybridge over the age of seven years were sent to Greenhill School. The Primary 1 and 2 pupils stayed on at Broomhill, which then became known as the "Wee School." In 1988 the Antonine School was opened and both Broomhill and Greenhill closed.
