The Royal High School  Club  was founded in 1849 with the objective of maintaining the history and standards of the principal school of Edinburgh.    It has entered its third active century with the same objectives in mind.    The move from Calton Hill to Barnton in 1968 and the change to comprehensive education in 1973 have not changed the objectives of the Club, who welcome all former pupils to its membership

What's new

The 2014 Prize-Giving took place on Friday 27 June.   Rector Jane Frith celebrated her final School event, and young iconic jam maker Fraser Doherty MBE delivered the FP address.    Full story and photos here.

The 2014 AGM held on 27th March saw the retiral of a legend.    Hon. Secretary Rab Forman hung up his pen after more than thirty years in the post, briefly split by a spell as President in 1993.    The committee are planning a suitable event to recognise Rab's contribution to the Club and School.     2001 Club President David Rutherford is assuming the role.  The committee welcomed returning committee member David Williamson, School Captain in 1991 and now Government and Communications Director at the Scotch Whisky Association.

The 2014 Annual Dinner was held at the Roxburghe Crowne Plaza on Friday 7th March .    Another splendid night - photographs of the event available here.
