St Philip's School, Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland
On 15 April 1970, St Philip's was formally certified to operate as a 'List D' School for Junior Boys at 10 Main Street, Plains, Airdrie, Lanarkshire. The school was named after St Philip Neri, a 16th-century saint from Florence.
Prior to a local government reorganization in 1996, the school worked closely with the former Strathclyde Regional Council. Since then, it has received support from the Cora Foundation, an agency of the Catholic Bishop's Conference of Scotland.
St Philip's is now a mixed gender service providing many of Scotland's local authorities with residential facilities for young people aged 10 to 17 years.
