The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh blends a large collection of medieval and classical architecture and is often considered one of Europe's premier destinations to visit. The campus is only a short distance from the city centre and is therefore a great base from which to explore this beautiful city.
One of Scotland’s most prestigious schools, Merchiston Castle School is located in 96-acres of stunning grounds in the Colinton area of Edinburgh. Based at the foot of the Pentland hills, it hosts state-of-the-art facilities, with access to many different sports and has high-quality accommodation and catering facilities. A truly historical school, studying English here gives students an amazing opportunity to ‘live the language’ in Scotland’s capital city and experience an authentic British experience at a premium boarding school.
The student accommodation is on campus; this can be an exciting experience and a great way to meet new people and make friends.
The students will live in the on-site accommodation blocks with predominantly single ensuite rooms but there are also some twin rooms with a shared bathroom available. There are shared kitchen/common areas too and the flats are furnished to a high standard and there is access to student Wi-Fi.
The safety of our students is always very important. The school has CCTV, secure access entry systems and St. Andrew's College staff are contactable 24/7.
All journeys on the student excursion programme will be by private coach.
