We offer an innovative British independent school curriculum for international students aged 4 – 18, starting in EYFS and culminating in IGCSE and GCE A Level. The campus, imbued with the ethos of its founding school Merchiston Castle School Edinburgh, is designed to create the kind of innovative learning spaces in which an effective 21st century education can flourish and inspire.

All MIS teachers are expected to participate fully in the school’s life beyond the classroom by contributing to boarding house life and the Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) programme.
