Craigflower Preparatory School was an independent preparatory school for boys at Torryburn near Dunfermline, Scotland.
Craigflower Preparatory School was established at Craigflower House, Torryburn, near Dunfermline, Fife in 1923. (Craigflower House was built in 1860 by David Bryce who designed Fettes College and the Bank of Scotland headquarters on The Mound in Edinburgh.)
The school's founder, F.G. Wailes, was educated at Malvern College and Emmanuel College, Cambridge and was Joint Headmaster at St Ninian's School, Moffat from 1913-1923. As of July 1946 there were reportedly 55 boys in attendance at the school.
Craigflower School closed in December 1979 with two masters and most of the boys transferring to Cargilfield Preparatory School in Edinburgh. The Cargilfield school library contains two silver plaques from Craigflower, the Webster plaque and the Stewart shield for head of school. The Craigflower School war memorial was moved into Torryburn Parish Church following the renovation of Craigflower House into 12 separate properties in 2000.
