Boarding at Merchiston
Parkinson House provides a wholesome boarding environment for up to 60 boys from Grades 3 to 7. It is overseen by the Head of House, House Mother, and 8 Boarder Masters. All staff live on the premises. These boys are fiercely proud of their house and are easily identified by their dress; their boarder blues.
Independence and a strong sense of self form the cornerstone of every boarder’s being. This develops over a period of time and we nurture and guide appropriately. Friendships, which are formed during their stay, will last a lifetime. Parkinson House has a proud history of preparing boys for their high school boarding years.
WHERE THE BOYS REST THEIR HEADS
The dorms are nicely spread out, spacious and painted in bright colours. The boys are encouraged to bring a blanket from home, for a personal touch. They may also bring a toy to keep on their beds, which helps to keep the dorms more homely.
