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.

We have all been working on our fitness during lockdown, but Rory has had a particularly important reason to pull his trainers on and head out for a run.
Prep School sport has thrived this term. We've learnt skills, improved fitness and simply enjoyed the pleasure of playing sport together again.
