The Glasgow Educational Society was founded in 1834 at the instigation of J.C. Colquhoun, of Killermont, MP, with the aim of establishing a Normal Seminary for the training of teachers. David Stow and the Reverend George Lewis were joint secretaries. The Society adopted the Glasgow Infant School as its model infant school, and St John's Parochial School as its model junior school. It opened the Glasgow Normal Seminary in 1837.
