Merchiston International School Shenzhen Campus Tour in July

 Merchiston International School (MIS) in Shenzhen is the first overseas campus of Merchiston Castle School, a top-ranked independent school located in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK with a glorious history of over 185 years. MIS is also the first international school in Shenzhen providing a British international education and boarding system.  


Located in Longhua District in the north of Shenzhen city, MIS occupies a ground space of 20,000 square metres providing a building area of 50,000 square metres, which can accommodate 1,200 students with a maximum class size of 22. The school will open its doors to boys and girls aged 5-18 (Years 1 to 13) in August 2018. 


English is the primary language of instruction at MIS. Students from Years 1 to 9 study the English National Curriculum, with additional access to Mandarin (Putonghua) language learning as part of the core curriculum. Students from Years 10 to 13 study for IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations and GCE (General Certificate of Education) A Level examinations. The curriculum gives students access to world-renowned universities in every continent and, at the same time, prepares them as global citizens.


Adopting Merchiston Castle School’s ethos, MIS features a wide range of co-curricular activities, supported by state-of-the-art teaching and sports facilities. We nurture our students and develop their talents in a diverse range of interests such as music, drama, art, science and technology; as well as mainstream sports including football, swimming, basketball, tennis and rugby. We also provide opportunities for adventure and outdoor activities such as golf among others. 


MIS is a boarding school that implements the highest standards of pastoral care, food quality and safety and provides first class accommodation with a high level of support and services to guarantee a healthy, secure, happy, comfortable and richly fulfilling campus life.  


The school campus provides an unparalleled educational space for teaching, learning and boarding accommodation. Impressive facilities include on-campus libraries, multi-media classrooms, integrated science laboratories, a black box theatre, an indoor swimming pool, sports hall, tennis courts, football pitches, a fitness suite, and tastefully landscaped areas. These ensure that our school integrates an exciting and adventurous campus life with a beautiful academic space for all students and teaching staff. 


The outstanding teachers at MIS are well qualified and experienced with over 85% from the UK and overseas. The founding Head of Merchiston International School, Chris Lynn, is a graduate of the universities of Illinois, Bangor, Hull and Bath, which culminated with a master’s degree in Educational Management. Chris has been working in education since 1991 and has gained rich experience in teaching and school management. After brief spells in two independent schools in London he has taught and led in various international day and boarding schools in the Bahamas, Beijing and most recently in Malaysia.  Chris started his journey in China in 2008, as the Deputy Head of Dulwich College Beijing, a position he held for seven years.  Before joining MCIS, Chris was the Head of Secondary at Nexus International School, Malaysia – the IB flagship school of the famous Taylor’s Education Group.
