We were delighted to receive many responses to the March 2019 edition of Highlights.

Based on the information we received, we have created a key to the staff photo from 1954.

Unfortunately some individuals remain unidentified. Names marked with an asterisk have not been corroborated by multiple responses and may not be accurate.

Whilst many of the teachers had pet names (such as 'Piggy' Whyte), we have only provided their given names and have used the spellings provided in the 'The Town School: A History of the High School of Glasgow' by Brian Lockhart.
