We are delighted to announce that Merchiston has achieved the prestigious Gold Award in UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools programme.
The Department aims to promote both an understanding of economic principles and an interest in their relevance to all spheres of life and the global economy.
The turbulent economic conditions of the past few years mean that the study of Economics is more relevant than ever. The Department aims to help pupils understand the causes and consequences of current events and policies, and to ensure that they have the necessary analytical and evaluative skills to question the decisions taken by politicians and business leaders.
Economics is available to students in the Lower and Upper Sixth Forms, who follow the OCR A-level syllabus or the SQA Higher syllabus.
