Fantastic wee nursery my wee grandson is in his second year here and my wee granddaughter was there for two years previously, I have joined in the parents groups as I take and pick up my grandchildren

Everyone very friendly and welcoming there is a lovely happy, busy atmosphere the minute you enter the nursery. There are lots of activites for the children to do, both inside and outside in the lovely grounds. There is lots of happy fun but also there is a structured learning program and the children are encouraged to learn at their own pace. All children are seen and treated as individuals. Any child who manages to get a place at Cloverbank Nursery is very lucky and will be getting a great all round start. My grandson has attend this excellent nursery for two years and has had a brilliant start to his education. Thank you to everyone at Cloverbank.

Rowena Nursery School

36 Knightscliffe Ave, Glasgow G13 2TE, UK – 0141 959 9056

The school was just rebuilt last year and it is everything you would want from a nursery school. Large modern airy classrooms/playrooms and a big spacious garden and play area. The staff are all very well experienced and seem to just know how to take care of children. I like the super secure entrance, just gives that extra feeling of comfort knowing your child can't get out and go wandering off.

My secondary school...Mr Valentine..Mrs McGrath..#greatmemories 😃

I put all three of my children through this school. Like any big school it has its downsides, but the education our children received was excellent, and they have come out strong, resilient, tolerant and well-rounded people. If I had any more children I would not hesitate to send them here and I would highly recommend it to anyone whose child is approaching secondary age. My children feel the same way!

My son only had a year here, but it is a nice school and the staff are very good, supportive and helpful. Only bad point is the annoyingly high amount of parents who feel the need to drive their kids to school, clogging up the small Road it on.

Absolutely fabulous As a retired teacher I feel that this is still one of the best schools in Glasgow

Love the classes here. Karen is a great teacher. Can't wait for my class to come around each week.

A Very Exhilarating and relaxing Dance school in Glasgow. It's great to come to a place that feels like home. I enjoyed how I could join dance classes and have the social aspect of having dinner with my friends downstairs in the cafe La bodega. The staff are very friendly and the whole place makes you feel like one big family. Would highly recommend it to everyone as there is something for all ages - love it ,love it - my new favourite place to go to x

Dance Glasgow

37 Ruthven Ln, Glasgow G12 9BG, UK – 0141 357 3800

The place is hard to find when you don't know where it is. No indications, no arrows pointing in the right direction (it's in a dark alley). I still paid for my class, but let's just say the experience wasn't the same. The directions on the website should be more specific. Plus, the studio could benefit of more mirrors since only the ones in the front could see themselves. The class was good, but not as good as it could've been if I wasn't that frustrated of losing 20min wandering around in the alley.

University Of Glasgow Veterinary School

464 Bearsden Rd, Bearsden, Glasgow G61 1QH, UK – 0141 330 2000

The majority of the reviews related to this are actually for the Small Animal Hospital, not this the teaching establishment. I'm neither a student or employee of Glasgow uni. Instead I'm a neighbour who enjoys walking his dog in the grounds of the former Garscube estate, with its established woodland garden. A great place to be which feels like being in the country, whilst still in town.

My Golden Retriever had a large tumour on his eyelid. George Peplinski and his team operated and now my boy has fully recovered. Not only was my boy well looked after at the Vet School but the courtesy and understanding given to me during a very worrying time was phenomenal. We are so lucky to have a wonderful establishment like this on our doorstep. Never be afraid to take your animals to the Vet School they will receive 5 star treatment by very committed individuals.
