The Arts

We allocate generous time to the arts because it encourages creativity and builds confidence in all of our pupils.Our art facilities are a light filled creative hub where our pupils utilise different techniques such as printmaking, ceramics, drawing and painting whilst learning the history of art and being inspired by artists from around the world. 

Music is a huge part of life at Fettes Prep with the vast majority of our children learning at least one musical instrument. There is a huge array of performance opportunities, whether in a large-scale orchestra, small ensemble group, or singing in the Chapel Choir abroad. 

Drama is thriving and every single pupil has the opportunity to get involved throughout their time at Fettes Prep, either on stage or behind the scenes.
