Leith Academy, Edinburgh


STANDARD PROGRAMME

One of the oldest schools in Scotland, Leith Academy goes all the way back to a founding date of 1560, but there are references to the “grammer scule of Leith” as early as 1521.

Located in the beautiful ancient city of Edinburgh, the school is located a short walk North East of the famous Edinburgh Castle – home to Scotland’s Crown Jewels and only a short hop from the east coast and North Sea. Scotland’s capital city is part medieval Old Town and part elegant Georgian New Town and is full of open parks, gardens and neoclassical architecture. Notoriously hilly, Edinburgh is famous for its sweeping views of the city, particularly from Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat’ a well known extinct volcano.

The school itself has been through many transformations. The current building was completed in 1991 and features an innovative design which centres on a glass roofed ‘main street’ which runs the length of the school with all facilities, departments and classrooms leading off.
