smooth progression from junior to senior education
We offer a different approach from other schools in that we smooth the progression from Junior to Senior education, which avoids the steep ‘step-up’ boys can experience when moving on from Primary education. We do this by introducing our Juniors to Senior School teachers, teaching methods and resources as they progress.
Some parents also find that starting their sons at Merchiston at 7, 8, 9 or 10 ensures that they avoid the stress and uncertainty around Common Entrance exams – or the decision making process around which senior school they will choose.
Merchiston Juniors also offers parents and boys fantastic added value; the facilities and teaching excellence in science, ICT and technology is significantly enhanced compared to most other junior schools, and the boys enjoy an exceptional range of co-curricular activities and sports.
