If your son has a special talent, he may wish to be considered for one of our Scholarships.

Scholarships are prestigious, competitive and made for the duration of your son’s school career, subject to his continued progress and good conduct. Being a Merchiston Scholar will be a proud recognition of your son’s talents and will allow him to cultivate his passion with the support of our expert staff. Whether he is an accomplished sportsman or a brilliant all-rounder, your son will proudly be sporting his Scholar tie throughout his Merchiston career.

A range of scholarships are offered each year across different subject areas and carry a 5% reduction in school fees (this reduction is being introduced from September 2024 with no retrospective financial reduction). Our Scholarships are awarded at two main entry points: Sixth Form Scholarship (16+) and Senior School Scholarship (13+). All applicants must also satify the academic entrance requirements for their age.

Please consult our Scholarship brochure (left menu) for further information on our programme and assessments. The application form can be also downloaded on this page and should be returned to our Admissions Team at, alongside your registration form.
