The Mary Erskine School has a tradition of academic excellence. Girls are offered an exceptional range of subjects in the sciences, humanities, languages, expressive arts and much more besides and excel under the care of teachers who are passionate about education.
Our aim is to equip all girls with the confidence to become positive, articulate and responsible citizens. Our academic curriculum plays a crucial role in this as a result of our very high but realistic expectations. We expect high standards in literacy, numeracy and presentation of work from all our girls, and so does the adult world in which they will live.
Academic success in exams is, of course, a considerable asset. We believe learning goes beyond this. We teach our girls to question, assess and think independently. Even if they do not relish the exams themselves, they will undoubtedly develop a deep-rooted enjoyment of learning that will reward them throughout their lives.
Twinned with Stewart's Melville boys
While the girls benefit from single sex education within the classroom, they also have opportunities to work and play alongside boys from Stewart's Melville. Through varied creative, sporting and cultural pursuits, girls and boys develop close friendships throughout their formative years as they grow up in our co-educational House system.
