About is of course about the club and what it does, while sub menu item ‘Our Committee’ has mug shots and mini biographies of all the current club committee members.

FP Biogs – Rector Pauline Walker recently asked the School Historian to create a number of contemporary biographies. This is not to say that Walter Scott, Alexander Graham Bell or Ronnie Corbett are not special, simply that there are many pupils in the Barnton era, and even since the millennium who have made considerable names for themselves.

Through Rose Tinted Spectacles – Robert Dunnett’s acerbic look back at his schooldays in the 60’s, in three parts

Happy Days – well happy for some. This is where former pupils and teachers can tell their tales of school life. It kicks off with ‘By Their Names Shall You Know Them’ where we hear about the nicknames applied to our teachers by the wags over the years

This is followed by stories grouped roughly by decade up to the nineties. We’d love to hear what happened at the school since then. Is it just too dull these days? All work and no play?

Also included in Happy Days is former head of music, Dr John Murray’s accounts of leading music tours to Europe.

Obituaries – Obituaries of RHS Club in London members and RHS teachers.
