Our aim in the Prep School is to balance ‘sport for all’ with our ethos of sporting excellence.
We encourage all of our pupils to work towards a shared goal and to learn equally from wins and losses. We actively encourage maximum participation and every child wins a place on a Fettes school team so that they can look forward to competitive games against other schools.
On-site, we have a wealth of sporting facilities, including: a water-based astro (so good that Scottish Hockey use it for training); cricket nets; beautifully maintained pitches; a swimming pool; and a climbing wall. Sport isn’t the only way to keep our children fit and healthy: we also have outdoor breaks in fully equipped playgrounds so that whether they like playing on the monkey bars or fun games on their very own astro, their break times are active too.

Our Prep pupils have been out enjoying a variety of games sessions and are picking up plenty of new skills along the way. We were very excited to take the cross-country team to their first competitive sports event in a year.
We have been revelling in our summer games programme during this glorious week of sunshine. The emphasis for now is firmly on enjoying games sessions and developing skills.
