Administrative history

Prior to the 1930s, this school was Dunblane Public School. 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 and the Dunblane School became a Junior Secondary. Junior Secondary schools were intended to prepare people for training and work. Senior Secondary schools 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.
