Fettes is uniquely situated in private, extensive grounds close to the heart of Edinburgh and enjoy the reputation as one of the UK’s pre-eminent boarding schools for boys and girls aged 7-18.
Full Boarding Ethos We are a full-boarding school with 75% of pupils in The College boarding full time and 25% day (we do not offer flexi or weekly boarding). Each boarding house (2 in the Prep School and 9 in The College) is a caring community of students and staff designed to be a real home-from-home.
