  • Fettes College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 7 to 18 in Edinburgh.

    Fettes aims to 'develop broadly educated, confident and thoughtful individuals who are prepared for life after Fettes and all the opportunities and challenges it will bring.' The College first opened in 1870, quickly gaining a reputation for academic and sporting excellence.

    Head Helen Harrison says: 'We offer each of our students the opportunity to make the most of their talents and gain a wealth of new experiences in a happy, encouraging environment. We maximise their potential by affording them all the opportunities that a boarding education can offer whilst ensuring the highest levels of care. We want our students to leave us surrounded by friends, with the best grades or IB score possible, being fully prepared for the next exciting phase of their lives.'
