New Herioter President

Welcoming Morgan Jamieson.

Jac Pentland (1997) has finished her two-year tenure as Herioter President. We are incredibly grateful to her for her attendance at Former Pupil and School events over the past two years, for the time she has made to meet so many of you, and for her thoughtful guidance on Development Office outreach activity.

A request for candidates to stand for Herioter President was made in the Autumn 2022 issue of Quadrangle. Unusually, we had no volunteers for the post!

The good news is we have found a Former Pupil who is prepared to take up the role and is perfect for it. You will read his words below. A huge welcome to the new Herioter President, Morgan Jamieson (1965). We all very much look forward to working with Morgan, as he too looks forward to meeting Former Pupils.

A longer article by Morgan will appear in the September edition of Quadrangle.

‘The unexpected privilege of now having been invited to take on the role of Herioter President for these next two years is as humbling as it is daunting as it is exciting.

The role is primarily intended to foster links between Former Pupils and the School to the benefit of both. While Herioters may represent a demographically and geographically scattered community it is a community marked by an abiding sense of loyalty and gratitude. It is also a community that incorporates a vast reservoir of talent, experience, and resource.  Building on the sterling efforts of my predecessors, Richie Adams and Jac Pentland, it would be my hope to further enhance the links between Former Pupils and the School in ways that both strengthen that sense of community and enrich the work of the School and, in so doing, maintain and freshly express something of Heriot’s vision and legacy - an aspiration that has particular relevance as we commemorate the 400th anniversary of his death next year.

I look forward to meeting many of you over the next two years, to sharing stories of the past and hearing ideas for the future. Beyond that at all times please feel very free to contact the Development Team or myself ( to explore how you might be more involved’.
