Single-sex but closely twinned with Stewart's Melville College
Your daughter will benefit from all of the advantages of single-sex education but, as part of the ESMS family of schools, the school is closely twinned with Stewart's Melville College through:
- a shared House system
- co-education for many activities, including trips, shows, concerts, orchestras, bands, societies and a wide variety of clubs
We also offer a co-educational Sixth Form which provides a genuine pre-University experience to prepare your daughter for University and for life.
School Coach Service and Boarding
For those girls who live further away from school, we offer a daily coach service across Edinburgh, the Lothians, and Fife and also offer Boarding facilities in our family-style boarding house. With a total capacity of 30, Dean Park House provides a comfortable, close-knit and happy home from home for children from Primary 6 to Sixth Form. Our co-educational boarding arrangements create better opportunities for social interaction, strong academic support and a consistent and supportive ethos for all our boarders. Find out more about Boarding at ESMS here.
Opportunities at The Mary Erskine School
At The Mary Erskine School we can offer your daughter extraordinary opportunities. Girls from the school have formed The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo choir, represented the United Kingdom in the European Youth Parliament on four occasions, performed in professional West End touring shows, gone on incredible trips to diverse locations including Malawi, Vietnam, New Zealand and China and represented their school and country in sports from hockey to fencing and from cricket to equestrianism.

" I think that learning in a girls school made a real difference for me. Crucially, the environment helped to build my confidence."
