About George Heriot's School
The Sunday Times 'Scottish Independent School of the Decade'.
George Heriot's http://www.george-heriots.com is one of Scotland's leading Independent Schools for girls and boys at Nursery, Primary and Secondary levels. We provide a quality education at our historic site beside Edinburgh Castle.
For over 350 years George Heriot’s School http://www.george-heriots.com has served as one of Scotland’s most distinguished schools. Today, it flourishes as an independent co-educational day school. Children between 4 and 18, from in and around the city of Edinburgh, form a vibrant school community. Together with staff, parents, governors, alumni, and friends, Heriot’s pupils hold true to the vision of Founder George Heriot.
The school seeks to provide a caring, well-disciplined education. We encourage responsibility, a desire for excellence, and a love of learning. George Heriot’s School welcomes children from all backgrounds. Each child comes with different gifts, and contributes in different ways.
Heriot's aims to provide a supportive, mutually respectful and well-disciplined learning environment which is holistic in approach and encourages positive attitudes, a striving for excellence and a lasting appreciation for learning amongst our pupils. Through our academic curriculum and our vast range of extra-curricular activities, we want our pupils to make the most of their opportunities for self-development and discovery of their full potential. Our boys and girls leave ready for the next stage of their lives – confident but not conceited; socially aware; ready to study and work. They love their School.
