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.

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. All boarders automatically have membership to our Sports Centres, which include AstroTurf pitches, a 25m swimming pool and tennis, badminton and basketball courts. Boarders aged 16 and over can also use our state-of-the-art fitness suite.
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, and enjoy planned trips and activities with fellow boarders.
Please note that our Boarding House will be closing in July 2025, however we are still accepting new boarders for 2023/24 and 2024/25.
