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 the 40 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.
Our vision is that every student is fully engaged in our service programme so that they can develop new skills whilst gaining confidence and self-awareness through helping others.
As part of 3rd Form Project Week, students ventured to a local conservation centre to undertake some direct service action in the environment.
