We are proud of all the leaving cohort of 2023 with our A Level candidates receiving their results on Thursday 17th August and accepting offers for diverse and interesting courses in superb institutions throughout the UK and around the world.

Courses for A Level students include Economics and Chinese at SOAS, Medicine at Cambridge, History at St Andrews, Computer Science at Edinburgh, Modern Languages at Durham, Zoology at Newcastle amongst many others. Students are heading off to study in the States at Harvard, UPenn and Notre Dame and even as far afield as University of Western Australia. We wish them every success in this next exciting stage of their studies knowing that they are ready to make a positive mark on the world.  

For this year group this was their first experience of external examinations and they have shown determination, resilience, hard work and a good dose of talent in order to achieve their success.

At Fettes, students have the opportunity to study either the International Baccalaureate or A level pathways and we are therefore delighted to announce the combined results of our 2023 A Level & IB examinations:

  • 16% A* at A Level or 7 at IB
  • 76% A*- B at A Level or 7/6/5 at IB

Jonathan Marchant, Deputy Head (Academic) said: “We are incredibly proud of what our Fettesians have achieved. We remain convinced that by offering both the IB and A level programmes we can play to the strengths of each of our students. Our dedicated staff also deserve praise for their role in this success”

Helen Harrison, Head of Fettes College said: “I told our leavers of 2023 how proud I was of them in their leaving celebrations last term before we knew about their academic achievements. They represent the best of people and their results only enhance my opinion of them. I know they would be quick to say thank you to our staff who have helped them live, learn and grow in this special place.”
