    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

      Sorry – no idea. All records for the area are held at the Heritage Centre in the local library. Try

      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?

    I have a History Primers book , titled Roman Antiquities by Prof A S Wilkins. It was published in 1908. Inside written in pencil is a name Jeannie Soures or something like that, class 4 Elgin Academy I was interested to know who this person was and rang the library. The lady told me to contact the archives, when I asked for a number she didn’t have one, how unusual is that, the school library didn’t have a number for the archives. Not what you would expect from an long established academy and guaranteed to put most people off.

      School archives were removed by council decades ago and are now in the public library at Cooper Park.

      Kind regards
