The School mark’s 85 years since it was founded on 2nd May, 1939. We will be hosting a celebration as part of the Spring Fair, which will be open to our school community, both present and past, including pupils, their families and staff.


Former parents, pupils and teachers: We value the relationships with all our alumni and supporters, and hope to build links with our global community. Your involvement in the School can help rekindle friendships at reunions, and provide opportunities for current pupils through our careers and development programmes. Please sign up to our Alumni Association if you would like the School to be able to contact you.


A programme of the Founder’s Day celebrations will be outlined here as it unfolds. If you have stories or photographs from the past 85 years of the School’s history, please do feel free to share with us. We also love to hear where our former pupils journeys from the school gates have taken them; and are gradually building a gallery of our graduates over the years. To contribute, please contact Sarah Miller: communications@edinburghsteinerschool.org.uk
