About George Heriot's School

The Sunday Times 'Scottish Independent School of the Decade'.

George Heriot's  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  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.
