Baltasound Junior High School, on the Shetland island of Unst, is currently the most northerly school in Britain.
It opened following the Education Act of 1872 which required public schools to built throughout the country. There were three on Unst, at Haroldswick, Baltasound and Uyeasound. Baltasound Public School opened in 1879 and the original building is now used as the Youth Centre.
The school expanded after the Second World War when the school leaving age was raised and the HORSA blocks (Huts On Raising School-Leaving Age) were built. Some of these still remain and are used for storage, but they were used by classes right up until 1995, despite being designed as temporary buildings.
The current Secondary Department was built in the 1960s and opened in 1968. The Music Hut was added in 1980. There used to be a swimming pool where the staff room and Art Room are now, but this closed once the Unst Leisure Centre was opened. The new Art Room was opened in 1991.
