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.

Pupil participation in matches
Our Monday and Friday games sessions are spent learning all about the chosen term's sports, which this term are hockey for the boys and netball for the girls. Pupils look forward to the opportunity to represent the school and this week's bumper set of fixtures saw 190 of the Prep pupils playing in 20 fixtures.
We are always thrilled to offer our Prep pupils opportunities to take part in team sports and we're delighted that our under 13 A team took up the challenge of participating in the Scottish Schools Netball Cup for the first time ever.
