Helping us achieve our mission
We all share the vision that Merchiston will continue to be a school that stands for quality, providing the environment and stimulus to enable young people's minds to be opened and their talents developed. We do this by employing the very finest teachers and coaches, and want everyone connected with Merchiston to enjoy the very best teaching resources, boarding and day accommodation, and arts and sports facilities.
Merchiston is the only remaining all-boys' boarding and day school in Scotland. Our goal is to ensure that each boy who comes to Merchiston realises his full potential, learns new skills and leaves as a courteous, confident, employable and well-rounded individual with a secure foundation for the journey of life ahead. In order to achieve this, like all schools in today's highly competitive climate, we constantly need to be improving and modernising our buildings and facilities to accommodate the wide range of activities offered to our pupils.
Merchiston is wholly independent, and having no Endowment or Foundation, relies entirely on the support of individual benefactors and its own limited resources. Our continuous investment in the future of the School has, therefore, been due to the success of four previous appeals, to the generosity of parents, Merchistonians, Trusts and well-wishers, and also to the careful management of School finances.

We do hope we can count on your support.
