The Fettes Foundation was formed in 1998 to raise philanthropic income for the benefit of Fettes and its pupils.
Since then, the Foundation has received donations from over 2,400 generous donors to support the provision of bursaries, a number of capital developments and other key projects.
Donations from our engaged community of Old Fettesians, parents and friends of Fettes transform the lives of pupils who come to Fettes and will continue to do so for generations.
Thank you to everyone who has helped the Foundation to achieve its aims for more than two decades.
I am grateful to all our donors and am delighted that each year members of our generous community choose to support us for the first time.

“The fact that there are many people within the Fettes community who continue to support us is testament to what a special place Fettes is. Thank you to everyone who has helped the Foundation to achieve its aims over the past two decades."

Fettes College is delighted to announce that Graham’s The Family Dairy is helping us celebrate the 150th anniversary of the College and 50th anniversary of girls joining the school by sponsoring specially designed sports shirts for First and Colts A Teams in the College and Senior Teams in the Prep, across a range of sports.
On 5th October 1870, Fettes College opened its doors to welcome its very first pupils. On 5th October 2020 we could not wait to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this moment!
We would have loved to invite everyone back to Fettes to celebrate with us, however, due to current restrictions, we had to change our plans and keep everyone safe. That did not stop us having a jam packed (albeit socially distanced) day marking this special occasion.
On Saturday 23rd May, Old Fettesians based in the USA gathered online for our first ever virtual event, ‘Coffee & Catch-up with the Head’.
