Open Day- Saturday 8 October

Join us at the Merchiston Junior & Senior Open Day on Saturday 8 October 2022. 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. 

At our Open Day you will hear from our inspirational Headmaster, enjoy a pupil-guided tour, experience learning and teaching, hear about sporting excellence and chat to our knowledgeable Staff. 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. As well as a physical Open Day in the morning, we will also be hosting a virtual Open Event in the afternoon for those unable to travel to meet with us. Please indicate on the form what suits your family best.
