School Description

Fettes is uniquely situated in private, extensive grounds close to the heart of Edinburgh and enjoy the reputation as one of the UK’s pre-eminent boarding schools for boys and girls aged 7-18.
Full Boarding Ethos:
We are a full-boarding school with 75% of pupils in The College boarding full time and 25% day (we do not offer flexi or weekly boarding). Each boarding house (2 in the Prep School and 9 in The College) is a caring community of students and staff designed to be a real home-from-home.
‘Sector-Leading’ Pastoral Care:
We know that only happy, well-supported children truly flourish. Life at Fettes is founded on strong family values: individuality is appreciated, cultures are embraced and unique talents are celebrated.
Maximising Academic Potential:
We seek to provide exceptional teaching in order to inspire a lifelong love of learning. The quality of education we deliver goes beyond achieving impressive academic results at GCSE, A Levels and the IB.
Sport For Life:
Participation in sport contributes significantly to the all-round development of each student. We have the facilities, expertise and enthusiasm to help every student achieve their sporting goals.
Creativity & The Arts:
Self-expression helps our students to explore and understand the world around them, gain confidence and think creatively. We provide the opportunity and inspiration to be brave, bold and creative.
Broadening Horizons:
We believe in the education of the whole person: we encourage pupils to take up a number of activities, join a wide range of clubs, attend stimulating talks and go on life-affirming trips.
Global Outlook:
We are proudly Scottish, celebrating all that Scotland has to offer, whilst also developing a confident, global outlook. With experiences that are rich and varied, our students’ aspirations can be worldwide with university choices both international and closer to home.
