Headmistress Irmela Turner
Craiglands was started over 15 years ago by Sharon Johnson and Irmela Turner. At this stage the support classes at Craighall Primary School were under threat and Sharon and Irmela took it upon themselves, with the support of Craighall Primary School, to start a small remedial school. There was such a need for remedial help that they then bought the house on Grosvenor Road to enable the school to grow.
At the end of 2011, due to her husband’s ill health, Sharon Johnson was forced to retire. The school is a private enterprise belonging to Irmela Turner.
It currently has classes from Grade 1 to Grade 7 including the necessary therapists.
