At The Mary Erskine School we are committed to single-sex education at secondary level. Young children enjoy each other's company when they are playing and learning together in the classroom but, when they move to senior level, boys and girls can inhibit each other.
With an all girls' education at The Mary Erskine School our girls:
At The Mary Erskine School we have many years of experience of working with girls in one of the oldest all girls' schools in Scotland and in the UK. However, we believe that it is also very much in our girls' interest to mix socially with boys to help prepare them for University and for life. That is why the twinning arrangement with Stewart's Melville College, part of the ESMS family of schools, works so well. Through the shared House system, the girls take part in many activities with the boys of Stewart's Melville College such as trips, concerts, bands and orchestras and performing arts whilst also having the opportunity to develop as girls. Our co-educational Sixth Form year then further helps prepare them for University and the wider world.
