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.

It's been a great start to the final week of term for our Prep pupils who have enjoyed their virtual Sports Day! Adam felt so nostalgic he recreated the traditional Sports Day lunch and everyone rose to the challenges set Mrs Fletcher and Mr Mill; they always urge us on to do our best, so we've included the inspiring story of Mrs Fletcher's hockey journey to prove that they lead by example.
At this time, looking after mind and body is more important than ever and we all know that regular exercise plays a key part, not just in maintaining fitness levels but also in keep stress levels down.
