Congratulations to Upper Sixth pupil, Rory W, who has secured a much sought after place to study Liberal Arts at New York University. One of the best universities in the world!
The Department is hugely subscribed for post-GCSE courses, with many students studying both A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics.
Academic achievement is a large part of what we aim for, and the Department continues to have fantastic results at all levels, including at iGCSE, AS and A-level.
What I like most about Merchiston is that it is a kind, caring environment, in which we want every pupil to become the very best he can be in all aspects of his development. I am personally very keen that each individual achieves the very most of which he is capable academically, and I see it as my job, with the rest of Academic Leadership Team, to identify the optimal pathway for each pupil. I believe that the staff are incredibly caring and hard-working, and that every single one of my colleagues has the best interests of the pupils (and each other) at heart.
