What the school says...
I am immensely proud to be the Headmaster of the happy community that is Fettes Prep. Like any good family we encourage the children to throw themselves into everything they undertake, but above all, we want the process of growing up to be fun. We believe that every boy and girl is capable of success and it is our duty to ensure that this success is achieved within a caring and committed environment.
Our caring community and broad curriculum encourages all children to develop a confident outlook on life. Our boarding houses, create a secure and homely environment for all the pupils. Academic excellence is achieved through encouraging the children to acquire the skills and attitude which will allow them to become successful adults. The Arts are thriving giving an excellent opportunity for self expression - artwork is displayed around the school, we have regular stage performances and a range of musical instruments are taught with expert tuition. The sporting and cultural life of the School is supported by an extensive activities programme crucial for an all-round education.
I would welcome the opportunity to show you all that Fettes Prep has to offer and let you experience the warm atmosphere of the school. Mr A A Edwards Headmaster Fettes College Preparatory School ...Read more
