Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School
From the moment boys arrive in Year 7, they are encouraged to develop their friendship groups, explore new areas of interest and broaden their personal horizons. The school helps boys to understand the potential they have within themselves how they can unlock that in ways that are bespoke to their own skills and needs.
The opportunities for boys to grow extend way beyond the classroom and boys excel at all manner of enrichment and co-curricular pursuits, including the CCF (Combined Cadet Force), major drama productions, national maths competitions or sports such as rugby, cricket, football or hockey.
Every boy will follow their own path to their own destination and our highly motivated and talented staff are there to guide them along that journey. Teachers and pupils develop bonds that stay with them long after they leave the care of Merchant Taylors’ and the school is proud of the lifelong relationships it has with its Old Boys across the generations, many of whom return to school regularly to support existing pupils with careers advice or by donating to the bursary fund.
The young Merchants’ men who leave the school are well-equipped to pursue a variety of successful careers and enjoy bright futures as intelligent, compassionate citizens of the world.

Many of the boys attend Stanfield Merchant Taylors’ before coming to the Junior, and then Senior Boys’ Schools.
Facilities include a brand new sports centre with climbing wall, fitness suite, sports hall and dance studio. There is also a heated indoor swimming pool on site, a language laboratory, extensive playing fields, fully equipped science laboratories, an art and design suite, cricket nets, a self-contained music block and a share of Northern Club’s facilities. The schools also have their own shop.
About 200 boys receive weekly instrumental tuition and there is a subsidised scheme for beginners on orchestral instruments. There is a School Choral Society, Junior School Choir, Senior Concert Band, Swing Band and a Junior School Brass Band, all of which perform frequently inside and outside the school. These are in addition to a number of smaller ensembles which ensure that all musical tastes are covered. There are 10 visiting specialist music teachers and close links in music with our sister school, Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School. There are also close links with the Girls’ School in Drama, which now forms an integral part of the Upper School curriculum as well as being a major extra-curricular activity. The Senior Schools work together on Joint School productions throughout the year.
