Memories of Heriot’s

After much anticipation, 'Memories of Heriots' is now available for sale. Collated during lockdown and in the long contemplative months which followed, Memories of Heriots contains reflections from 87 former pupils, from 1935 through to 2003, recording stories from an array of characters who attended George Heriot’s School during these years.

From war time air raid duties and bomb-watching to stories about cracking milk bottles in the playground, and the shocking consequences; from tales of memorable teachers and the notorious riding of a motorcycle into school; from the ‘12:10’ rush for lunch to playing the train times to one’s advantage, it is certainly a varied, unpredictable, and fascinating read.

The wonderfully curated opus ultimately paints a familiar and nostalgic picture of the pathway that pupils from Edinburgh, and beyond have walked over many sessions during their formative school years.

This 180-page, 245 x 280mm-sized book costs £65 (+ P&P) would make a superb gift for a fellow Herioter or an opportunity to personally purchase your own treasured snapshot in the 400-year history of the school.

The book can be purchased on the school website via the shop:
