Chalmers West (Age 13-14)

Chalmers West is the entry House into the Senior School and, as such, holds a real significance in a Merchiston boy’s career.

It is not uncommon for a boy in the Sixth Form to cite Chalmers West as his most memorable year; it is a mixing pot, with boys coming from all over the world. It is this unique experience of getting to know and living with so many diverse individuals that makes this House so special.

Our main aims in the House are to encourage friendship and camaraderie; develop responsibility; and cultivate a sense respect for those around us and our surroundings.
