Merchiston Preparatory School offers a modern and progressive syllabus with an emphasis on the importance of hard work, commitment and self-discipline. Our boys are encouraged to achieve their best. A child-centred approach to teaching and learning is encouraged, where individual differences are recognised and catered for.
We believe that sport plays a pivotal role in the education of boys. Teamwork, discipline, grit, determination and good sportsmanship are but a few qualities that our coaching staff strives to instil in our boys at all times. The Merchiston Sports Philosophy hails: “Winning cannot be our ultimate goal. Our success will be our process.”
Parkinson House provides a wholesome boarding environment for boys from Grades 3 to 7, where their potential, individuality, independence and well-being are nurtured and guided. Cared for by a Head of House, a House Mother, a Boarder Mistress and 7 Boarder Masters, our boarders develop a strong sense of self, lasting friendships and a fierce pride in their house.
