The Edinburgh Academy Parent Reviews

“Bad sportsmanship”


I watched my 11 year old grandson play rugby for Clifton Hall School against an Edinburgh Academy team recently. The Academy team was easily the stronger team a won the game with ease. The game was spoiled by the Academy boys arguing with the referee and general bad sportsmanship. I told their games master that I was an Academically (1958-62) and that I was appalled at his team’s behaviour and was told “they are always like this”. I can only hope that this is a one off.

The Edinburgh Academy Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK.
