Merchiston


Merchiston is unique in Scotland as a boarding and day school for boys aged 8-18. Whilst, primarily a full boarding school many of the younger boys join as step-up boarders and our packages offer an excellent introductory experience to boarding life. “We are a very nurturing school with the highest standards of pastoral care. We believe firmly in the significance of a boy’s academic platform in putting him in a position of choice, but equally, the co-curricular activities teach the boys vital life skills. Essentially, we develop all-rounders with a sense of values.” Andrew Hunter, Headmaster “It has been so refreshing that we have been treated as


individuals. The care and attention given to us and our son has been incredible. We feel that we are part of a special community where we are always made welcome.” Parent “In every respect - academic, sporting and pastoral - the School has exceeded our expectations, and continues to do so. In particular, the staff appear to have an almost magical ability to maximise the potential of every boy, irrespective of their natural talents. But above all, it is the Merchiston ‘end product’ that impresses us year after year; the young men who leave the School for university each year are polite, confident gentlemen, that any parent would be proud to call their sons.” Parent
