Langlands Park School, Port Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
On 2 July 1962, the Langlands Park Approved School for Girls was formally certified to operate in premises at Glasgow Road, Port Glasgow, Lanarkshire — the building had previously housed the Carnegie Park Orphanage. The new school was run by the Church of Scotland.
Following Scotland's 1968 Social Work Act, the establishment became a 'List D' School.
The buildings no longer survive.
