142 Inspection 1876 26/07/1876 253 - Mr Charles George Playfair "The arithmetic throughout the school was very inaccurate and the spelling of the 3rd standard was not good. Those in the fourth, fifth and sixth standard did not know their geography and history and those in the third standard had not done their prescribed grammar. The reading and handwriting were creditable. The singing by ear is very fair and the children were under good discipline."

"My Lords have ordered a deduction of one tenth to be made from the Grant for faults of instruction (article 31). I am also to warn you that the Register must be kept strictly in accordance with the regulations laid down by their Lordships, otherwise a sever deduction may be made from the Grant under article 32(b)"

Miss Drysdale is recognized as qualified under article 32 (cl.3)
