In particular, we would like to thank David Partner, teacher of History  in Armadale, 1963 -1971, for allowing us to see some of his memorabilia, and also for giving us his research on Sir William Honeyman, Lord Armadale, 1756 - 1825

If you missed the Academy Closure Event on 28th May 2009, you may be interested to see the photos

This photo was taken in May 1966.  The team had just won the West Lothian Junior Secondary Schools League Championship.  In those days Scotland had junior and Senior Secondary Schools, the former only taking pupils up to the age of 15.  Good pupils from the primary schools planning to go on to Higher Education went to Senior Secondary at age 12.

This team also reached the final of the West Lothian Under-14 Cup in 1966 / 67 where they lost 0 - 1 to Linlithgow Academy.
