We encourage all of our students to try new activities, push themselves and embrace all of the opportunities which a Fettes education provides.
Whether choosing from over 90 plus activities on offer, working towards their Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award, or finding ways to support local charities, our self-motivated students emerge with new-found skills and experiences.
International trips and excursions closer to home are many and varied, whether representing a sports team or choir, volunteering, or participating in a student exchanges. The benefits of these opportunities are immense, fostering independence whilst creating life-long memories.
We prepare our students to become global citizens with a responsibility to contribute to society. Their engagement in service and charity work is key to understanding the positive impact they can have in assisting others so, from volunteering to charity fundraising, all of our students are encouraged to take an active role.
