david Blair Rogerson Housemaster, 1XV coach, PE Teacher
I joined Merchiston in 2016 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far.
I love the pastoral side of the job and helping the boys through a challenging GCSE year in Rogerson House. Many of the boys arrive at the house as young boys and leave as young men and I really enjoy being part of their transition. I am also heavily involved with the rugby here and coach the 1 XV rugby team as well as teaching Physical Education.
I really enjoy spending time with my family, I have a 2 year old son who keeps my wife and I busy! I love to play golf and padel tennis. My happy place is walking along a beautiful beach in East Lothian with my family.
I enjoy seeing the Rogerson boys develop into young men and being a part of their journey. Watching and speaking to boys about their passion and seeing the hard work they put in to achieve their goals is very inspiring.
