Life at Fettes

The Care and Welfare of our pupils is fundamentally important to us. We aim to provide a positive and supportive environment in which our pupils have the opportunity to flourish in all aspects of their lives.

At the heart of Fettes

The Houses are the most important unit of organisation at Fettes and provide the focus for each pupil throughout their time at Fettes. Day pupils are members of the Boarding Houses and follow the same routines as boarders.

A strong support network

Should support be needed this is available for each pupil from a large variety of sources; the Housemaster or Housemistress, their spouses, Assistant Housemaster and Mistress, the Resident Tutor, Academic Tutor, Matron, House Prefects and other senior pupils.

Strong positive relationships

All members of staff are attached to a Boarding House and undertake duties within them and they also take part in extra curricular activities around the school. This means that staff and pupils build strong positive relationships. In addition help and advice is always available from the School Doctors and Medical Centre Staff, the School Counsellor and from the Chaplain.
