ActivityOn 14 January 1840 a meeting was held in Tulliallan to discuss the lack of school accommodation at which the inhabitants of Tulliallan decided to raise money by subscription to erect a new school house.

A bottle containing various documents was placed inside a hole in the foundation stone. In May 1840 the Governenment's Committee on Education granted the Education Association £200 towards building the school. The school opened on 26 January 1841.
