Mer­chis­ton is the only boys’ in­de­pen­dent board­ing school in Scot­land, of­fers the English cur­ricu­lum, and has a global, out­ward-look­ing di­men­sion. The school has an im­pres­sive record of help­ing boys ex­cel be­yond their pre­dic­tions. The lat­est aca­demic re­sults at ev­ery level of­fer clear ev­i­dence of our value-added and com­mit­ment to lead­ing stu­dents to­wards per­sonal ex­cel­lence. Fur­ther­more, boys have gained places at some of the lead­ing Bri­tish, Ivy League and other out­stand­ing in­ter­na­tional uni­ver­si­ties, in­clud­ing Ox­ford and Cam­bridge.

Mer­chis­ton prides it­self on fos­ter­ing the pur­suit of ex­cel­lence in a sport-for-all en­vi­ron­ment. We be­lieve in teach­ing an un­der­stand­ing of the role of sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in achiev­ing an ac­tive and healthy lifestyle.

Mer­chis­ton’s spe­cial­ist academies are at the top of their game: No1 Ju­nior Golf School in the UK (fifth year run­ning) and No 2 World Ten­nis School 2017.*

Whether a pupil joins as a boarder, or a day boy, learn­ing and fun op­por­tu­ni­ties are not lim­ited to school hours but con­tinue through­out the day, evening and week­end – on the pitches, in our class­rooms, and in our Houses. “A balanced cur­ricu­lum, ex­cel­lent pas­toral care and a high A level pass rate make Mer­chis­ton one of the UK’s lead­ing in­de­pen­dent schools” is how uk­board­ingschools.com rated the school. Mer­chis­ton is a re­mark­able school where boys make life­long friends, whilst gain­ing a world-class ed­u­ca­tion. *In­de­pen­dent Schools Golf As­so­ci­a­tion / In­ter­na­tional School Sport Fed­er­a­tion
