The Academical Club

All former pupils of the school are known as Academicals (or Accies for short). The Academical community stretches across the globe.

The Academical Club exists to support the School and also serves as a powerful social and careers network. There are Academicals in nearly every profession you can think of, many of whom are happy to offer advice to help with the transition from education into your chosen career.

The Club holds various events throughout the year to which all Academicals are invited, including a Burns Supper each January, an annual reunion and Accie Gatherings held across the country, and increasingly internationally.

The Edinburgh Academy is investing in the Academical community and has appointed Jennie Robertson to manage the Club’s affairs, developing communications and events for Academical groups.

We are now on both LinkedIn and Twitter and invite you to connect with us there where you can keep in touch, join in discussions and hear about other events and reunions.

The Academical Club office now has a new home in the Donaldson's Building, together with the Edinburgh Academy Archive. A warm welcome will soon be extended to all Academicals to visit us and perhaps delve into photographs and journals from their days here at Henderson Row.

Until then, if you would like to speak to us about the Academical Club, would like further information about the Academicals, or wish to update your contact details please email Jennie Robertson at or call on 0131 624 4958.

Floreat Academia!
