  • Brief Description: Merchiston is a boys’ school in Scotland offering the English curriculum, and has a global, outward-looking dimension. Merchiston takes pride in specialising in the education of boys and has an impressive record of helping boys excel far beyond their expected results at GCSE/IGCSE and A Level. Think about a wonderfully caring and nurturing environment, where they will 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 a community.
