Archived Admissions Page

At Fettes, we aim to make the admissions process as relaxed and informative as possible. Our Admissions Officers Harriet Marshall, Natalie Zindani and Caoimhe McKinney, will be your main points of contact throughout the process; they are very happy to answer any questions that you may have along the way.

It is only by visiting Fettes that you can get a true impression of what we can offer your child. Individual visits can be arranged throughout the year at a time and date that suits your family. Taster days and overnight stays are also available within both the Prep School and the College.

So that we can arrange a visit for you, please complete your details using the form below and we will be in touch to assist.

In order to be kept informed about entry examinations and events of interest, we would suggest you register your child and, as we receive many more applications than we have spaces for, early registration is advised.
