All pupils in S2 can undertake an international visit, which might be to France, Germany or Spain – or further afield to our partner school in Taiwan.
Pupils from S3 upwards have an ever-increasing range of international options, including a generously subsidised Don Mercer Exchange with schools in Melbourne (Australia), exchanges with Wynberg (South Africa) and Harley School in the United States. Pupils also have the opportunity to apply for a Scholarship to Hamilton College, a leading US College for a ‘Gap Year’.
Other travel awards and scholarships include; the Murray Awards for developing language skills; the Sanson and Women Watsonian Centenary Award for adventurous travel; and the Bank of Scotland Tercentenary Scholarship for financial/commercial study.
Independent travel by our School leavers can be supported by numerous travel award schemes administered by the School.
