George Watson’s College is an Independent Mixed Day School catering for boys and girls from nursery through to senior 6. The result of the legacy of George Watson, the college sits on a single 50-acre campus, surrounded by lawns and trees. The school’s motto is ‘Love From The Heart’ and its ethos is underpinned by the school charter, drawn up by students from the school. Its focus is on mutual respect, achieving one’s own potential and consideration of others.
Students are encouraged to take a full part in the life of the school and to learn through extra-curricular activities and personal experience gained through trips and expeditions, as well as through classroom based learning.
The school is based just south of Edinburgh city centre. It is easily accessible by bus, rail and road. There is a school bus service running between the station and the school at the start and end of every school day.
