On the morning of Sunday 15 May, 8 students travelled up to Cluny clays in Fife to shoot a clays match against the Merchistonians. During the afternoon the Merchiston small-bore shooting team welcomed the Merchistonians in the Miller Range to compete in the annual competition.
Welcome to Merchiston
I hope you find all you need on our website to help you with the important task of selecting a school for your son.
Read, digest, explore. Meet our community. Discover what makes us different. Understand our aims for your son and how we will deliver on them. See if you can imagine him here.
Merchiston is a remarkable School where boys make lifelong friends and community connections, whilst gaining a world-class, global, outward-looking education.
Our community’s wellbeing is central; without it, no one will ever achieve their best. That is why wellbeing underpins everything we do. It is what makes for meaningful and connected conversations. It is how we get to know your son really well. It is why we can support and motivate him in just the right way. Your son will thrive because he is known, understood, valued, and supported in everything he does.
When your son joins us, he will leave Merchiston as a rounded individual, not only having achieved the highest level of personal academic success, but also with a sense of who he is and with respect for others, having learnt what it means to have true integrity and character.
I would love to talk to you about your son and, more importantly, talk with him to work out what makes him tick, discuss where he wants to go next and make sure he has the toolkit to get there. I invite you to take a closer look at Merchiston to gain a feel for the unique atmosphere, ethos and spirit we offer and to discover how we can deliver an education made for your son.

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