The numbers of schools competing had grown every year since the War and 1922 did not break the trend. The ‘Scotsman’ of Tuesday, 16th May, 1922 gave the list as below and it easily and quickly seen that there is a fine mix of schools, state and private, north south, east and west – included.
Not just schools from Glasgow and Edinburgh and their environs: Inverness, Dundee, Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Rothesay, Perth and Dumbarton were all present. Only error was Whitehall for Whitehill and nobody seemed to know whether it was a High School, a college or an academy, but it did nor stop them winning medals.
