School Video



Head PhotoFettes is uniquely situated in 100 acres of private, extensive grounds close to the heart of Edinburgh and enjoys the reputation as one of the UK's pre-eminent boarding schools for boys and girls aged 7-18.
Learning: Fettes is renowned for the quality of education it provides which naturally includes superb academic results across GCSE, A Level and the IB. We strongly believe that with expert tuition and encouragement, every student can realise their ambitions.

Life
Boarding Houses are a vital part of boarding life, a caring community of students living together. A wealth of house activities cements the strong bond between housemates, younger students learn from older students and older students take responsibility to care for others. We are a full-boarding school (meaning we do not offer flexi or weekly boarding) and each boarding house is a caring community of students and staff designed to be a real home-from-home.
Sport
Sport is an integral part of a healthy and active lifestyle, developing key life skills such as teamwork and communication. Specialist coaches, access to a wealth of on-site facilities and a busy calendar of sporting fixtures are key elements of our sporting provision.

The Arts
We allocate generous time to the arts because it encourages creativity and builds confidence. Fettes offers a true all-round education and the provision of the arts is central to that philosophy.

Co-Curricular
We encourage all of our students to try new activities, push themselves and embrace all of the opportunities Fettes has on offer. Whether choosing from 40 plus activities, supporting local charities or utilising the cultural highlights of Edinburgh, our self-motivated students emerge with new-found skills and experiences.

Proudly Scottish
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.
