The 1918 Education [Scotland ] Act Today Catholic schools in Scotland are public schools – designated as “denominational schools” because they were, from the 1920s onwards, gradually transferred from Church ownership to State ownership. The 1918 Education Act in Scotland guaranteed the following rights to the Catholic community. To celebrate this historic centenary there will be a National Schools’ Mass at Falkirk Stadium on Thursday 14th June. Each school is being asked to organise their request for tickets before 20th April. If you wish to apply for a ticket[s] please contact Mrs Savage at St Bernadette’s PS as soon as possible.
