Fettes College is uniquely situated in extensive grounds close to the heart of Edinburgh, and enjoys a reputation as one of the UK’s pre-eminent boarding schools for boys and girls aged 7-18.
Fettes’ mission is to develop broadly-educated, confident and thoughtful individuals. The hopes and aspirations of each of our students are of central importance to Fettes, and the happy, purposeful environment of the College encourages students to flourish and develop fully the skills and interests that they possess.
The imposing main building is believed to have been used as the basis for the Harry Potter series.
The school achieves very good results at A-level and especially the IB.
Sport plays a major role in the life of all Fettes’ students and an elite programme is available for the gifted and talented.
