Inter Scholastics 1866 – 1870: 1870

Despite talk in 1869 of the sports being held at Merchiston Castle, they were again held at Raeburn Place and went off well.Although it reported that all the best athletes from all the public schools in Edinburgh were taking part, there were still only four establishments in action.  For the second time in five meetings the qualifying dates for the various age groups was given in the report, and the jumps for height participants were graded by their height.   The speech at the end of the afternoon was abbreviated to the point of almost non-existence.

Crowd size was better than satisfactory, the standard of athletics was high and the report was by far the best of those printed so far in the series.
