Merchiston Preparatory School – a Thinking School

Thinking Schools SA logo for Merchiston ed154 jul15
In order to prepare our children adequately for the 21st Century, Merchiston has embarked on an exciting journey and has become a pilot school for Thinking Schools South Africa.

Our focus is on developing thinking tools which will equip our boys with critical skills and strategies to support them as they venture along life’s journey. With the world changing so rapidly, the jobs of the future will require greater problem solving skills. The thinking tools selected will therefore assist our boys to problem solve, organise their thoughts and make more effective decisions. Our aim is to produce independent learners and more importantly, independent THINKERS!
