Is it time to choose an Independent school?

Merchiston Edinburgh

Merchiston is the only boys’ independent boarding school in Scotland, offiers the English curriculum, and has a global, outward-looking dimension. The School takes pride in specialising in the education of boys and preparing them for the world, developing aspirational, and sensitive, yet gentle-men! Think about a wonderfully caring and nurturing family environment, where boys learn to like learning more.

With an ethos based on traditional values, Merchiston encourages self-reliance and independence, as well as respect for and tolerance of others. The main objective is to motivate pupils to try their hardest and to strive to achieve the highest levels possible in all areas – firstly academic, then cultural, sporting, leadership, and simply living together as part of a community.

Another aspect of the boys-only philosophy is that time is regularly set aside to meet girls from our sister schools. This allows the boys to focus on study in school time, but also to have plenty of opportunities to socialize and make friends through curricular, co-curricular, and social links.

Outstanding off the field…*

• 47% of pupils achieved A*/A grades at A Level

• 82% of pupils gained places at their first or second choice university

• 64% of pupils went to UK Russell Group Universities, Bath, St Andrews and leading international institutions
