About Us

WATCH NEWHAVEN HERITAGE TV NOW ON

The school was designed by James Lessels and Harry Taylor of George Street, Edinburgh and opened in 1845 with  later extensions in 1874 and 1875.  The firm of Lessels and Taylor were architects of renown responsible for a number of buildings in the New Town or for revising their design.  


It is a rare example of an early Victorian educational establishment with many period features.  This jewel of Victorian architecture is preserved with its original timber sash and case windows, a relatively unchanged interior retaining timber boarded dado panelling, iron radiators, stone stairs, cast-iron banisters and double-height hall making the school an impressive and virtually complete example of its type.
