About The Edinburgh Academy Senior School

 Introduction to the Edinburgh Academy

The Edinburgh Academy is an academically selective, independent, co-educational day school for pupils aged 2–18, with a reputation for being caring and friendly. The Edinburgh Academy aims to be forward looking and progressive but also greatly values its long held traditions.

The School has a strong reputation for individual attention and excellence in its pastoral care and co-curricular provision. 

The School consists of a Senior School containing approximately 650 pupils and Junior School containing approximately 400 pupils, and we have a Nursery department of around 100 pupils. The School is a member of HMC. 

About the School

The School was founded in 1824 and has been regarded as a leading educational establishment within the City of Edinburgh and across Scotland ever since. Original Directors included the leading literary names of their age such as Sir Walter Scott. Robert Louis Stevenson and James Clerk Maxwell were also pupils at the School.

The Junior and Senior Schools are on separate sites, both of which have spacious grounds and sports facilities including extensive playing fields, an all-weather sports area, and a large Sports Hall and Centre.

The Senior School occupies a site in Henderson Row, less than a mile from Princes Street and at the northern limits of the Georgian ‘New Town’, of which it was designed to be a part. 

Games and Activities

At the Edinburgh Academy, sport offers opportunities at all levels. The PE curriculum is varied, encompassing a wide variety of team games and individual sports. The School runs teams in a large number of sports and encourages pupils to represent the School at one or more sports at any age group. 

In Music, there are about 20 performing groups including orchestras, choirs, wind bands, a big band and several chamber groups. 

In Drama there are usually three or four main productions each year. There is a fully active LAMDA qualification schedule in acting, reading for performance, mime, public speaking and Musical Theatre in place. 

A full list of co-curricular clubs is available on request but it aims to meet the interests of a wide range of children.

Further details about the School and its resources are given on the School website. www.edinburghacademy.org.uk.
