Administrative history

Aberfoyle originally had a Public School from the late 19th century. Aberfoyle Junior Secondary School was in operation from c. 1951 and closed in July 1974 with pupils transferred to McLaren High School in Callander. By the 1930s, the main structure of Scottish secondary schooling had settled into a pattern of three-year ‘junior secondary’ and five-year ‘senior secondary’ courses. Junior Secondary’s were intended to prepare people for training and work. Senior Secondary’s were intended to lead to the professions either directly or through university. Allocation of pupils between these courses was mainly on the basis of tests of intelligence and of attainment (in English, arithmetic and mathematics) taken in the final year of primary school.

Archival history

The records of the Aberfoyle Junior Secondary School were first accessioned in 2012. It is presumed that the records were transferred to the Central Regional Council Archives by Perth County Council after the local government reorganisation of 1975.
