Music and Drama are major parts of life at Merchiston. The departments collaborate regularly and pupils of all ages have the chance to be involved, either performing on stage or working behind the scenes.
There is an orchestra and other instrumental groups, including pipe bands, and a choir and choral society, as well as opportunities for individual instrumental lessons.
