About the school
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 70% of pupils in The College boarding full time and 25% boarding in our Prep School (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.
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.
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. 75% of our students come from the UK, 15% from British ex-pat families and 10% international families with 40 countries represented.
