Rogerson House

MOTTO: WE SOAR BY LIFTING OTHERS

Rogerson caters for our female students split into Rogerson North and Rogerson South both with girls from Year 7 to Year 13.

——MCS Rogerson House——

Rogerson House

Named after John Rogerson, Headmaster of Merchiston 1863 to 1898.  John Rogerson, affectionately known to all as 'Chief', was Headmaster for over thirty years. During this time, the reputation of the School and the numbers attending steadily increased. He believed that games help to develop character and the School prospered in terms of scholarships and games.  Rogerson House opened in the Autumn Term of 1930. This followed the move to Colinton from the old Castle in Bruntsfield and provided a well-equipped, heated boarding house with running hot water for showers and a large day room to relax in. Such luxury had never been available before to the pupils and staff.

MIS Rogerson House

Rogerson caters for our female students split into Rogerson North and Rogerson South both with girls from Year 7 to Year 13.  In Rogerson they have common room areas on alternative floors with well equipped kitchens that have dishwashers, fridges, microwaves,  washers/driers and recreational areas with TVs, pool tables, small libraries with board games and soft beanbags.   Rogerson residential staff live on alternative floors and the house has a team of female visiting tutors each evening.  Each floor has rooms that accommodate triple or single beds, all with en-suite showers and toilets.

The Houseparent are always there to support students, even through the school day, leading a team of form tutors who support the students academically and pastorally. In the evenings, the houseparent leads a team of experienced and dedicated team of resident staff, both expatriate and local who live within the house to support students with study, as well as the pastoral needs.

Students are provided with a regular laundry service for their uniform and the rooms are all serviced each day. They are encouraged to make the space their own. Students can also enjoy a comfortable common room on every other floor, with facilities to have provided snacks or make their own snacks at designated times in the evening, play games like chess or scrabble, access the vast boarding libraries filled with literature in English and Chinese, or even watch a movie on Friday and Saturday night with their friends.

MIS is a no smartphone school, but several land lines are located in common rooms, so students can contact parents regularly throughout the week. This allows them to have more focus on their studies, to socialise and play games with friends, and sleep well through the night.

The beauty of the MIS campus is its vast outside space, which includes a running track, basketball court, & football pitch, which students use for lessons and co-curricular activities (CCAs) in the day, but can utilise and enjoy in their free time in the evening or afternoon.

This means a Rogerson student is a very active student both academically, physically, and within the community. Developing their mind, body and spirit of class time also, which is a fundamental part of being an MIS student.

Rogerson

Rogerson House is a welcoming home to our students in Years 10-13. Five floors in the lower half of the building house our boys, and the upper five floors are for our girls. Boys and girls in Years 10 & 11 share a spacious 
two-bedroom room equipped with plenty of storage, large bathrooms, and an individual study space. Years 12 & 13 have their own bedrooms, again equally as spacious and well equipped for study. 
New Rogerson boarders quickly learn to manage their own time effectively. As our older students they get themselves up, organised for the day, attend meals, and have some freedoms at break times and study times (Years 12 & 13) to access their rooms. 
The Houseparent is always there to support students, even through the school day, leading a team of form tutors who support the students academically and pastorally. In the evenings, the houseparent leads a team of experienced and dedicated team of resident staff, both expatriate and local who live within the house to support students with study, as well as the pastoral needs.
