Welcome to Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School (MTBS). Thank you for taking the time to be interested in what we do. I hope that this overview will give you a flavour of what we offer, but there is no substitute for visiting us and meeting the people, pupils and staff, that make up this wonderful and warm community.

At MTBS, we aim to develop well-educated, well-rounded and caring young men who will play a significant role in society. They will become good men, good husbands and good fathers; they will be good team members as well as leaders; above all, they will seek to be a positive influence wherever they find themselves. We have high expectations of our young men and we expect them to share these expectations.

Our young men are all academically able and we seek to nurture in them a spirit of inquiry and curiosity which will see them explore their chosen interests, whatever these might be. They are guided by committed, enthusiastic and inspiring teachers who have strong subject specialist knowledge – a key factor in developing students to their fullest extent.

Mr David Wickes, Headmaster

Alongside this academic rigour, we offer an abundance of other opportunities. Whether it is on the stage, in the concert hall, on the sports field or working in the community, our young men have the chance to grow in areas outside of the classroom.

At the same time, this is a warm, caring community where people are prepared to go the extra mile to help one another. I believe that our school is a happy, vibrant place, full of energy and enthusiasm. It is filled with aspiring and ambitious people who want to make the most of themselves and help those around them do the same. I very much hope that you will come to visit us to see for yourselves what makes Merchant Taylors’ such a special place.
