School Uniform: Scottish School Caps

Figure 1.--Although they were once as common as in England, only a few Scottish schools by the 1980s still had caps..

HBC has relatively limited information on Scottish school caps. We believe that the tradition peaked school cap like the ones worn in England were standard wear for Scottish school boys. Through the 1940s they were still very common in Scotland. The popularity of caps, however, began to decline in the 1950s. By the 1980s, school caps were not common even at preparatory schools. HBC know of only a handful of Scottish schools in the 1980s wear caps were worn.
