Open Day- Saturday 16 September

Join us at the Merchiston Junior & Senior Open Day on 16 September 2023. This is a great opportunity for prospective students and families to discover Merchiston, ask questions and take a closer look at the world-class education we provide. 

Our Open Day will offer you the chance to tour the school, chat to our departmental Staff, meet our Academic Leadership Team and find out more about what Merchiston has to offer. Our Admission Team will be on hand to answer any additional questions and guide you through the admission process too. Please register your interest using the form on the right and further information on timings and structure will be forwarded in due course.

Doors open 9:45am. Event starts 10:00am.

Alongside our Merchiston Open Day, we will also be running an information event for the Forest at Merchiston. For more information on this event and to register your interest, please visit this page
