The architecture of Edinburgh Schools in the early 19th century

The 1872 Education Act made elementary education compulsory, and led to a large building programme by Edinburgh School Board. But many schools for the working classes existed before this, run by religious denominations, by charities, and (uniquely to Edinburgh) by Heriot’s Trust. Professor Robert Anderson looks at the surviving architectural evidence for these schools, and explains how they were founded and how their form reflected the way teaching was organised.
