Merchant Taylors' School

About this Organisation

Merchant Taylors’ School has been one of the top ten boys’ schools in the UK since its foundation by the Merchant Taylors’ Company, one of the twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London, in Suffolk Lane in 1561. One of the nine original ‘Clarendon Schools’, its alumni have achieved great distinction. However, the school wears its heritage lightly, its strong sense of tradition very much at the service of the future. Through the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust, it retains close links with other Merchant Taylors’ schools, and with the Merchant Taylors’ Company itself. Relocated from the City of London to Sandy Lodge, Northwood in 1933, the School occupies a superb setting: 286 acres of lakes, playing fields, and woodland, all within easy reach of Central London, Middlesex, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire. There are four distinct boys’ day schools on campus. The Nursery, the Pre-Prep & the Prep cater for 340 boys from 3 to 13 years of age, while the Senior School has some 900 pupils from 11 – 18, with over 300 in the Sixth Form (The Prep School shares some of its facilities with the Senior School, but is a separate school in its own right). Competition for places is fierce, and entry is by competitive examination at 11+, 13+, and 16+.
