Being able to interact with people of different ages and cultures and getting to live so close to the beautiful Edinburgh city centre as well as living on the school grounds are some of the many perks of being an ESMS boarder.

Bedroom sizes vary and accommodate between two and five boys. Boys will share their bedroom with similar aged boys and are free to personalise the space around them using pinboards provided. Sixth Form have their own accommodation on the top floor of the house and may have their own room depending on the number of boarders. The boarding houses are maintained regularly and are refurbished each summer holiday.
After school most of the boys and girls take part in a number of the vast array of sporting and artistic opportunities available to them at school. At the weekends they attend planned activities such as skiing, climbing, surfing, ten pin bowling and trips to the cinema. In their leisure time, the children can relax in purpose built break-out areas and relaxation spaces equipped with the entertainment technology children and teenagers appreciate. Andres (S6) said that "gaining my independence and making friends for life have been some of the most rewarding aspects of boarding here at ESMS."
