Our People

The beating heart of our ESMS Community

The Development Office is the hub of our ESMS Community.  Our very experienced team help our alumni and friends communicate with each other and support our pupils as they prepare to make their mark on the wider world.  We also help transform the lives of children through our Access to Excellence fund and would love to talk about the many ways that your contribution can have a positive impact.  

We are always happy to hear from members of the wider ESMS Community - alumni, parents and former parents.  Please feel free to email development@esms.org.uk with any queries you have or give Suzi a call on 0131 311 1131.
