Single-sex but closely twinned with The Mary Erskine School
Your son 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 The Mary Erskine School for girls through a shared House system and co-education for many activities, including trips, shows, concerts, orchestras, bands and societies. We also offer a co-educational Sixth Form which offers a genuine pre-University experience to further help prepare your son for University and for life.
School Coach Service and Boarding
For those boys 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 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.
