Excellence

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a caring community for your son, which treats him as an individual, unearths and tends his talents, encourages him to pursue excellence in all he does, and enables him to really flourish.

Our Difference

 

The Merchiston Difference

What makes Merchiston different? It is a combination of things: our size, a relentless focus on the individual, and the fact that we really understand boys and how to get the very best out of them.

It is a potent trio. It is what enables us to know your son really well and to understand what makes him tick. It is why we can support him in a way that is material and motivating to him. It is the reason your son will strive for personal excellence and want to be the best version of himself.  It is the secret of his, and our, success.
