Visiting Fettes

In advance of your visit to Fettes, we have created an insightful short film introducing you to our community. Fettes is a special place and our students the greatest ambassadors, so we asked them what they would tell you if taking you on a tour. Although no substitute for an actual visit, we hope it inspires you and we look forward to meeting you in person soon.  


Individual Appointments

We are delighted that due to the easing of restrictions, we are now able to offer private face-to-face family tours of Fettes College and Fettes Prep. Our Admissions Department will help you arrange your tour and inform you about what to expect including:  

  • Tour of our beautiful 100 acre campus, visiting classes, Chapel and sports facilities along the way 
  • Meeting with a Houseparent to discuss the sector-leading pastoral care at Fettes  
  • Time with the Headmaster of Fettes Prep, Adam Edwards, or Head of Fettes College, Helen Harrison to discuss how your child will thrive at Fettes 
  • Time to talk through any final questions with our Head of UK Admissions or Head of International Admissions 
  • We can also arrange appointments with specific subject teachers or our SFL department as required
