|Description||Fragmentary records consisting of minutes of groups responsible for the management of the school, including governors and lecturers, corporate records consisting of a certificate issued to a shareholder, and an essay written by a student at the school which won the Johnstonian prize in 1832. There are no surviving records for the first few years of the school's existence, 1825-1831. |
The minutes are a useful source for the study of the management of the school during the 1830s, and provide information about the administration and financial position of the institution. They also contain references to subjects taught, and the general responsibilities of teaching staff, but do not discuss the curriculum or specific teaching activities, and individual students are not mentioned.
