Our Mission

Curious, creative and kind, Fettesians give of their best and make the most of their wealth of opportunities. They are inspired to aim high while understanding what it means to be a good person and to give back.

In partnership with families and communities, a full-boarding ethos remains at the core of the school and a Fettes education continues to matter to all.
