This week Merchiston hosted nine Scottish independent schools for an afternoon of cross-country relay races.

We have a special relationship with our sister school, St. George’s School for Girls, Edinburgh.

The arrangement allows your son to focus on study in school time but also socialize and make friends with girls in the normal way through joint expeditions, concerts, tours, seminars, Combined Cadet Force, debating, social events and study courses.

You can enjoy a reduction in fees if you have three or more children at Merchiston and one of our sister schools. We aim to align term dates, wherever possible, to make it easy for you as a parent with children at different schools.

Whether it is juggling motherhood with training or winning the 800m in front of millions at home, she (Jessica Ennis-Hill) can do it all. Simply seeing Jess's success encouraged me and gave me the confidence to throw myself at sport.
