The Royal High School Club in London

Royal High School Club in London welcomes former pupils and teachers of the Royal High School of Edinburgh, Scotland (RHS).

Find out more about the club on our About page.

Latest news of the club and events can usually be found in our News and Events blog before appearing on this page.

Our website also contains many stories from former pupils and the odd former teacher. We also have a ‘Where are they now’ section where old school photos can be posted and hopefully former friends can be reunited.

As well as the links at the top of the page, there are links in the footer which may also be useful. In particular, our Site Map provides an overview of the material available and should assist in finding your way around this site.

Captain Eric M brown

You will have seen the reports that Royal High former pupil Captain Eric Brown has passed away at the grand age of 97 after a short illness. Eric attended our RHS London Club dinners in 2011 and 2012, as guest speaker, together with his partner Jean and he made a big impression on those audiences with his inspirational speeches. One of our members, Gordon Burt, has provided links to some of Eric’s obituaries taken from publications at home and abroad

I would also highly recommend the podcast of his Desert Island Discs appearance of 14th November 2014
