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.

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.
