Beyond the Classroom
At every stage of their education, Heriot's pupils are encouraged to participate in the wide range of activities available to them outside the formal classroom environment. The School has an impressive range of extra-curricular activities, including games and sporting activities, drama and music, and a large number of clubs and societies, the CCF and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Numerous trips and visits take place throughout the year to destinations in the UK and abroad.
Charity work is also an important focus, and our pupils pursue fund-raising activities with great enthusiasm and imagination. A well established and highly respected scheme of voluntary service enables senior pupils to serve both within the School and in the wider community. All of these activities are an important part of the School's philosophy of educating the whole child, and they greatly enrich the life of the School.
