A World School. Unlocking Cultural Borders

At Merchiston Academy, Songshan Lake (MAS), we believe that linguistic and cultural integration is the best way to educate world citizens and equip students with the skills needed for studying abroad.

·    As an English school, we follow the A-level syllabus using a wealth of foreign textbooks. More importantly, we prioritise individualised mentoring and close pastoral care—the central to qualities of a British education. Our personalised approach to teaching ensures that every student is known by every teacher and reciprocally, enabling us to deliver on the promise of providing the best of British education by offering a focused and differentiated approach that nurtures every child to thrive.

·    As a Scottish school, we showcase the very quest for excellence that shaped Merchiston Castle School in Scotland, and embrace Western cultural norms.

·    As a Bilingual school, we employ teachers of the highest calibre in both their subject and their knowledge of English. International orientation is our vision, and our Chinese identity is the soul that feeds it. Ultimately, the pursuit of the fusion of innovation and tradition makes up the very chromosomes of MAS’s DNA.

·    As a World school, we take a holistic approach to learning and encourage interdisciplinary exploration and cultural awareness.

·    As a local school, we immerse students gradually into an English-speaking environment and provide extensive linguistic support to ensure that every student reaches their full potential.
