Welcome to The Royal High School website


The Royal High School is one of the oldest schools in Scotland and we are very proud of our history. We are situated in the west of Edinburgh and are a fully comprehensive, non-denominational high school. We deliver courses at every level up to Advanced Higher and pride ourselves in supporting all learners to achieve at the highest level possible. We believe in providing an excellent and innovative education for our young people which best prepares them for their destination of choice post school. In addition, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to learners. These pages will hopefully provide a flavour of the vibrancy of life in The Royal High School.

We hope that you find this site informative and helpful. Within the pages you will find information about the history of the school, details of our policies and plans, information about staff and courses, news from the Parent Council and links to our Former Pupils’ site. We also publish our daily bulletin on-line which gives up-to-date information about what is happening in school.

Should you wish to find out more about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us at admin@royalhigh.edin.sch.uk
