St George’s partner boys’ school – Merchiston Castle School

We run joint activities with boys and girls from several schools and have a special relationship with Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh. 

Merchiston is a boys-only school based in the Colinton area of Edinburgh. It is a short drive from St George's.

There is a discount scheme currently available with brothers who attend Merchiston (for third and subsequent siblings).

Our relationship with Merchiston includes both schools joining together for concerts, shows, numerous social events and various expeditions all through the school year. There is also a shared combined cadet force (army corps.).

In addition, we run daily morning and afternoon transport for students from Merchiston to St George’s.

St George's does not admit boys beyond the start of the pre-school year prior to entering primary one.
