Fettes is a family for life. We are lucky to benefit from an energetic, generous and vibrant global community. Our dedicated Development Team engages with and connects Old Fettesians, parents, former staff and other friends of Fettes to support each other and the work of the school. We are deeply grateful to everyone who helps us.
The Development Team focusses on three main areas: supporting the Old Fettesian Association to keep in touch with alumni and run events; facilitating career support and connections within our community; and raising philanthropic income for the Fettes Foundation to benefit the College and its pupils. We draw strength from those in our widespread community who support our goals and engage with our ambitions.
