    Good morning,

    I am hoping you will be able to confirm for me if my great-great grandfather was headmaster at Elgin Acadamy in 1864. His name was John Garden. I am looking at his son’s birth certificate and this is listed as his profession.
    Many thanks,
    Carol Ellis-Clarke nee Garden

      I’ll look at the board in our hall tomorrow but think it only goes back to 1900. I’ll come back to you

    Hi, my daughter is currently in P7 at Hythehill Primary, Lossiemouth. We’re due to move home to Elgin (Thornhill Road area) later in the year, and would very much like her to attend Elgin Acadamy in the Autumn term, however are unaware if there is a specific catchment area for the admission… would you be able to help with my query please?
