A wide variety of Sporting opportunities

Students at The Mary Erskine School have extraordinary opportunities to enjoy and excel at sport. Whether they want to compete at a national level or just enjoy playing sport with their friends, there are over 20 sports to choose from. The standard of sport at MES is high, with students regularly representing their country at a local and national level. We are proud of their success but our fundamental aim is to instil a love of sport in every pupil and we offer a large number of teams to ensure everyone can compete in the sports they love. Last session we had over 90 teams representing The Mary Erskine School,

Recent Mary Erskine School sporting highlights have included:

  • Netball: won the U13 Scottish Cup
  • Basketball: S1 team won the Scottish Schools Cup
  • Hockey: 1st XI Hockey Team reached the finals of the Scottish Schools Cup
  • Athletics: won silver medals at the Scottish Schools Relay Championships in Glasgow
  • Cricket: 1st XI Cricket Team reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Schools Cup and the School was awarded a place in the Top 20 All-girls’ Schools for Cricket for 2023
  • Swimming: ESMS swimmers took home six medals and a trophy at the Bath Cup and our Mary Erskine School swimmers won gold, silver and bronze at the Scottish Swimming National Age Group Championship

Students regularly represent their country in sports as diverse as hockey, football and orienteering. They are inspired by former pupils who have gone on to pursue a career in sport, including: Lynsey Sharp, a champion track and field athlete who won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and represented Great Britain at the Olympics at Rio de Janeiro; the hammer thrower, Myra Perkins and Amy Costello, a Scottish international field hockey player who plays as a defender for Scotland and Great Britain. This legacy serves to encourage every student to develop their talents and strive to be the best they can be.
