Kay Wilson Director of Admissions
I joined Merchiston in 2008, starting as an Admissions Assistant and am now the Director of Admissions. Along with my colleague Heather, I have responsibility for recruiting boys to the School.
There are many things that make Merchiston special, but for me it is the boys that bring the School to life and I have been delighted to watch those we have recruited grow and develop from shy young boys on arrival to confident young men when they leave.
My son started here at the age of 7 and entered Upper Sixth Form for his final year in August 2019. I will always be eternally grateful to all the staff and boys who have made his, and my, Merchiston journey as special as it has been.
Travel – I love going to different cities and countries and having great experiences
Reading – when I have some spare time I love getting my Kindle out
Going out – living in Edinburgh is very special and I like trying different bars and restaurants with friends and family
I have many inspiring moments and these are all based around the boys and seeing them flourish and embrace all that Merchiston has to offer, and striving to achieve their personal best.
