I arrived at the opening bell along with a classroom of school kids. The lady at reception suggested I start my tour on the top floor and work my way down so that I would be going against the flow of the students.
On the top floor are classrooms set up for various time periods to show what school would have been like during that time. First up was the old Victorian Classroom. A staff member, dressed like a school marm, was preparing for the arrival of the school group. And in true school marm form, was quite miserable.
Next up was the WWII Classroom.

The second floor had the boys and girls cloak rooms where students coming to visit could go and dress like the kids in the victorian time period. It also had rooms that were more of a museum and showed parts of the life of the school. And a separate room was dedicated to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the architect of the school.
