Parish Profile
   
  Newton Mearns is a suburban parish on the southern perimeter of Glasgow which, after the redrawing of the parish boundaries, has approximately 7000 residents. The parish extends from over the Fenwick Moor to the East Renfrewshire border and covers some fifteen square miles. The area south of Mearns Cross is sparsely populated and consists mainly of farmland and open country. The vast majority of parishioners live in owner occupied housing in an area of approximately two square miles situated between the Ayr Road (A77) and the Stewarton Road (B769). The population of the parish continues to expand as the building of new homes in the area continues.

Locally there are a good number of sports clubs for golf, tennis, rugby and bowling. In Eastwood Park there is a recreational centre with a swimming pool, gym and theatre. There are a number of private health clubs in the locality. There are a number of parks in the area, Rouken Glen being the largest of these.

There is a good bus and train service into Glasgow and easy access by the M77 into Glasgow and Silverburn shopping centre. Newton Mearns has its own centre, The Avenue, which is close to the church.

The parish falls within the catchment area of some of Scotland’s top performing schools. The local primary schools are Crookfur Primary and Mearns Primary. Both of these schools also have nursery classes. The local secondary schools are Eastwood High and Mearns Castle High. Eastwood High School opened as a new building in 2014. Both high schools have excellent facilities which provide pupils with a high quality learning environment. Primary 7 pupils who attend Mearns Primary have the choice to attend either secondary school. The Isobel Mair School is the only additional support needs school in East Renfrewshire and enjoys a national reputation for the high standard of work which it does with both pupils and their families. It comprises a family centre, primary and secondary department within the school.

Newton Mearns is a residential area popular with all ages, young couples, more established families and older people alike. As the parish continues to grow, we are looking to welcome more young people and families into NMPC.
