As an independent school, Fettes Prep can maintain a wide and varied curriculum which inspires pupils to think creatively, fully engage with each lesson and build on their academic potential.
Pupils forge a strong rapport with their Form Teacher; from the age of seven, they also learn specialist subjects from specialist teachers.
A strong emphasis is placed on a sound and thorough grounding in the traditional subjects of Maths and English. A mixture of IT and traditional writing skills are utilised throughout the school to aid learning. If a pupil requires a little extra help, our superb Support for Learning department and classroom assistants will be on hand.
The maximum class size is 18 which means that our teachers get to know each child on an individual basis and can provide the attention and input they need.
Learning from Home
Learning from Home has so far taught us all to think creatively, adjust swiftly, work collaboratively and enjoy new challenges.
Our Prep staff have adapted their teaching techniques and our pupils have responded spectacularly. We have discovered that even though we have been working apart, the fun and joy of learning is keeping us together.

"I feel that my children’s teachers really know them as individuals and have a clear understanding of how to engage them in every lesson."
"The enthusiasm of the teachers at Fettes Prep is unparalleled. I see my children being encouraged and helped to be all they can be, by a team of extraordinarily committed staff."
"Having specialist teachers from the age of seven is hugely beneficial. Our son is more confident in his learning since joining Fettes Prep."
This week we asked our staff and pupils what has been their most memorable moment of the term. We've compiled our thoughts into this Week 9 Round Up, which is a celebration of resilience, joy and hard work.
This has been a very difficult time for many people so, eight weeks on from the start of our Learning from Home programme, we're reflecting on how the Prep School community spirit has withstood our time apart.
