Kay Wilson Director of Admissions 

I joined Merchiston in 2008, starting as an Admissions Assistant and am now the Director of Admissions. 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

Inspiring Moments

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.
