School Description

A place to live. A place to learn. A place to grow.
Situated in a stunning 100-acre campus, Fettes College is a leading co-educational boarding school.
Curious, creative, and kind, Fettesians aim high whilst understanding what it means to be a good person and give back.
“Our students will leave the school knowing themselves, looking out for others, capable of thinking critically and ready to make a positive mark on their rapidly changing world. They will be bold and visionary yet compassionate; they will possess a global perspective and be ready to embrace the opportunities of the future.” Helen Harrison, Head.
- Excellent GCSE, A Level and IB results
- Sector leading pastoral care
- 60+ co-curricular activities
- Proudly Scottish with a global outlook
A full boarding ethos allows Fettes College to maximise students’ potential, delivering excellent outcomes for the individual, whilst ensuring the highest levels of care. All senior school students – day and boarding – are part of a boarding house and each believes their house is the best house! House spirit is strong.
Innovation and creativity are key. Fettes recently introduced Engineering, Enterprise and Technology (EET) into the curriculum, including Robotics, Structural Engineering, programming and 3D printing.
