A Word From Our Headmaster
Thank you for your interest in Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School. Our school proudly combines an emphasis on traditional educational values with a caring and forward-thinking approach.
Those values include personal excellence in academic study. Naturally, success looks different for each boy and our highly-motivated, specialist teaching staff encourage
all of our pupils to develop a love of learning, pursue their passions and strive to become the best version of themselves.
Respect and empathy are also central to our approach, as they underpin all of the personal interactions between boys and with their teachers. Our tailored system of pastoral care emphasises the importance of these qualities and provides bespoke support to pupils as
they move through the school.
We understand that busy boys are happy boys, which is why we work so hard to provide a stimulating range of activities outside the classroom –a variety of sporting, musical, cultural, dramatic, intellectual and adventurous opportunities abound here.
We are also a highly-progressive school, always seeking to improve what we do for the pupils in our care. Future developments include new, improved sports facilities at Hall Road, the provision of 1:1 electronic devices to all pupils over the next two years and even closer collaboration across the wider Merchant Taylors’ School as we adopt a ‘Diamond Model’ of education.
Boys who attend our school invariably make a lifelong connection that endures well beyond their years with us. We are proud of the support our former pupils provide to current pupils and their families, from careers support and mentoring to fundraising for bursary places to ensure that as many boys as possible are able to experience a Merchant Taylors’ education, regardless of their financial circumstances.
This is an exciting time to join Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School. Our website provides a host of valuable information but there is no substitute for paying us a visit and hearing directly from pupils and colleagues about what has continued to make our school so special for more than 400 years.
Please do contact our Admissions team to arrange a personal tour or to attend one of our Open Events. I look forward to meeting you and your family and welcoming the next generation of Merchants’ boys.
