Person NameCromarty School Board; 1872-1918
ActivityThe Education (Scotland) Act 1872 (35 & 36 Vict., c 62) created school boards in Scotland with a statutory duty to provide education for all children between the ages of 5 and 13. The boards had an elected membership made up of owners and occupiers of property of the value of £4 or over. They were responsible for the building and maintenance of schools, staffing and attendance of pupils. They were overseen by the Scotch Board of Education. The Education (Scotland) Act, 1901 (64 Vict. and 1 Edw. VII, c. 9) raised the school leaving age to 14. School boards were abolished under the terms of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1918 (8 & 9 Geo. V, c. 48) and replaced with school management committees.
