Description:
For the A-listed building on Calton Hill, see Old Royal High School, Edinburgh.


The Royal High School (RHS) of Edinburgh is a co-educational state school administered by the City of Edinburgh Council. The school was founded in 1128 and is one of the oldest schools in Scotland, and has, throughout its history, been high achieving, consistently attaining well above average exam results. It serves some 1200 pupils drawn from four feeder primaries in the north-west of the city: Blackhall, Clermiston, Cramond and Davidson's Mains.

The school's national profile has given it a flagship role in education, piloting such experiments as the introduction of the Certificate of Secondary Education, the provision of setting in English and Mathematics, and the curricular integration of European Studies and the International Baccalaureate.John Murray, A History of the Royal High School. Edinburgh, Royal High School, 1997, pp. 117-119. The Royal High School was last inspected by HMIE in April 2007., Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education. Retrieved 3 November 2007.

The rector is Jane Frith, the first woman to head the school.Stephen Houston, 'Top Scots school ends 900 years of tradition - with its very first female head', Mail on Sunday (London, 18 October 2009)., Evening News (Edinburgh, 19 October 2009).
