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.
"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."
