His Story – Boys’ Views
EVERY BOY IS AN INDIVIDUAL. EVERY BOY HAS A STORY. LET US SHAPE HIS FUTURE STORY.
We do hope that these films give you a flavour of the education that Merchiston offers.
Scotland’s education system offers outstanding quality and choice across both the independent and state sector. Many schools can boast about their exceptional academic reputations, extensive sporting programmes, welcoming atmospheres and stunning facilities, and, indeed, we can do that as well.
What makes us different, however, is that we are a boys-only school, and we believe that; by doing what is best for the boys, our pupils are engaged and encouraged to achieve their personal best in all areas. We believe that boys learn differently from girls; and every aspect of the education we offer is tailored around this simple fact.
With every boy’s Merchiston journey, we believe that the best direction we can provide is to care for the boys, to inspire them and, again, to try always to keep the mantra ‘Boys First’.
“We want pupils to grow up strong and independent; we want them to care about truth and trust and be happy, responsible members of a School which respects and develops their individual gifts.” Housemaster
