Do you recall any McBains or McBeans in there at the Grammar school?:)
As far as the schools in the 1830s, I am OK without any staff or pupil lists.
I was just hoping I could get the names of those schools in the Spa Street area that a student who lived on Spa Street may have attended.

Any schools in Aberdeen in the 1830s, from past experience, have no
surviving records of staff and pupils, at least none currently held by
the city archives.
The only item that I know of is the Aberdeen Grammar School Roll of
Pupils, 1795-1919; but note that the earlier years, up to 1863, only has
the name of the pupil, class, and school years (not calendar years)
attended. From 1863 there is much more detail. The material is ion the
form of a published book by Theodore Watt, published in 1923. I have a
copy in my KinHelp research library.
