Looking for Info: Stirling High School, Scotland, 1930s

My father, George Arthur Adam, attended Stirling High School for five years in the 1930s. I presume that it was five years as he saved five blazer badges, which I still have. I would like to find out more about his attendance there, and nail down the specific years. He is Adam-1499. Any help, no matter how small, will be appreciated.

You could try contacting Stirling Archives . They have some admission registers for local schools  https://www.stirling.gov.uk/libraries-archives/archives/catalogue/. If they haven't got them then they might be able to point you in the right direction . Sometimes they are still at the school ;sometimes  they no longer exist.

There are closure periods that apply to school admission registers . Searching Scottish archives online I found different periods from 30 to 100 years after the last entry. Even if they are closed an archivist should be able to extract the info for you.
