Heriot's is Edinburgh's oldest independent school comprising a historic 400 year building which is one of the jewels in the crown of Scottish architecture. Heriot's remains firmly rooted in its charitable purpose: the Foundation sits at the heart of school, educating children who have lost a parent through bereavement. Bursarial aid and the outstanding voluntary service of pupils continues this charitable remit. The school today is in robust health, with a large school roll, a dedicated teaching body and plenty of laughter in the classrooms.
Heriot's achieves excellent exam results: it offers an unparalleled range of sports and activities (93); it demonstrates both inclusiveness and excellence in its people, its pupils and its culture. Over-arching all is our ethos: 'Work hard. Be kind. Be happy.'
There is no doubt that Heriot's pupils, parents and staff subscribe to these important values, backed by personal guidance and clear disciplinary guidelines.
