Lowers and Highers

Post by Judith Ost » Sun Sep 27, 2020 10:56 pm

Somewhere I found the school certificate results (lowers and highers) for my grandparents in the early 20th century. Now I want to see if any of their siblings were similarly blessed and I have no idea where I found them. It was from those results that I discovered that both attended Boroughmuir School which I see is still in existence. I know I should have kept the reference somewhere I could find it later!

Hi Judith,


Looks like the City of Edinburgh Archives have the records for Boroughmuir Secondary School for most of the first half of the 20th century.


I don't know if this archive service of the City of Edinburgh Council is running just now with Covid restrictions in place.

My Dad went to Boroughmuir, but his leaving date was just after those available in the archives.

All the best,
