About the School
Merchant Taylors’ School is an independent day school which has been widely-regarded as one of the best schools in England. Their curriculum is tailored to individual needs in order to facilitate not only students’ learning and examination success, but also their personal development.
To better help Sixth Formers to discover and develop their talents, there are special features for Sixth Form classes, for example, smaller class sizes, academic supervisions, and new subjects available (Economics, Politics, Philosophy, Psychology).
