Student Experience of Scottish Boarding Schools, 1970s-1990s
Author: Paterson, L.
This report uses statistical data from surveys of students who left school between 1976 and 2000 to provide some insights on students’ experiences of boarding schools in Scotland in that period. The analysis was carried out by Professor Lindsay Paterson (Professor of Education Policy, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh) following a request by the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. His work on re-analysing the surveys has been conducted as part of a Major Research Fellowship funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
