Fettes College is a remarkable school with a long history of providing opportunities for people from all backgrounds. The College has a tradition of excellence in academic, sporting and cultural activities and we encourage our pupils to stretch and challenge themselves in everything they undertake.
Our pupils benefit from the wide range of activities they can enjoy in our beautiful grounds as well as being able to take advantage of the proximity of the centre of Edinburgh and the outdoors beyond.
Happy children learn. They need to have the freedom to learn about themselves, to develop confidence in their abilities and to understand how to work alongside others. We are conscious of the challenges that young people face and do our utmost to ensure a stable, caring community. We want our pupils to feel valued as individuals and fully supported in achieving their best.
We hope to ensure that our students leave Fettes as kind, interesting, independent minded individuals who are willing to take on responsibility and motivated to contribute to society. We aim for them to have the strongest possible foundations for their future.
Do come and visit the College so that you can experience for yourself the energy and enthusiasm of our staff and pupils.
Start by jotting down all your activities, including volunteer work, internships, part-time jobs, and other out-of-school interests. Then pare down your list to activities in which you’ve been most active. Include the amount of time you’ve spent on each activity, leadership positions you’ve held, and honors and accomplishments you’ve collected. Be specific. As yearbook advertising director, did you sell a record number of ads and increase profits? As band president, did you convince the school administration to budget money for new tubas? It’s important to distinguish yourself from other qualified applicants.
