Sports Facilities Appeal
We are embarking on our biggest sporting development at Merchiston for a generation. We are upgrading our sports facilities with a number of major improvements. Our new facilities will be amongst the best in Scotland, and will enable more boys to enjoy the widest range of sports and to excel in those sports. More than that, we can expand how we help young people in the wider community by enlarging our existing programmes. We will be able to teach more young people to swim than we do now. Working with those schools without their own grounds, we will develop sports coaching programmes in rugby, football, tennis and golf. In this way we will share our sport for all philosophy far beyond our own boys.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Merchiston community, we have raised two thirds of our target; enough to allow us to start the first phase of the development, the general purpose astro. This was completed in the Summer of 2016 and may be seen in the video below.
