English as a Foreign Language
Fettes welcomes pupils from throughout the world. We offer expert tuition in English as a Foreign Language from specialist teachers led by Mrs Jane Palfery B.A., M.A., PGCE.
Small class sizes
Pupils learn in small classes until their standard of English is good enough for them to have all their lessons with native speakers. The lessons often take place when other pupils are being taught another modern language
We like our foreign pupils to have a good basic understanding of English before joining Fettes. We are willing, however, to consider applications from young intelligent pupils with little knowledge of the language. These pupils receive intensive courses in the Prep School to enable them to integrate as quickly as possible both socially and academically.
Universities in English-speaking countries require a recognised qualification in English such as the IELTS examination. At Fettes we are very experienced and successful in preparing overseas pupils for this examination.
The charge made for four lessons a week is £340 per term. The cost is adjusted in proportion to the number of lessons.
