Chapel

The chapel is at the physical and spiritual heart of the Fettes community. It is a beautiful and tranquil place where for generations Fettesians have met, worshipped and reflected together.

Each school day begins there with a short act of worship and gathering for the middle and senior school.

The purpose of chapel is not to proselytise or to convert, nor only to offer a time for quiet and reflection each morning, but also in our context to educate, to inspire and to challenge. It is the only place where the whole Fettes community meets, where important news is shared, where stories are told and listened to and where laughter and tears may be common.

Each of our boarding houses takes it in turn to conduct morning chapels for one week each term. Often our students will, as individuals, share something close to their own lives and experiences.

Our Chaplain, Revd Dr Tony Clark, plays a very special role in the life of Fettes College, offering support and guidance whenever the students, or indeed staff, need it.

Each Saturday in term time, pupils, parents and staff from the Prep School meet there for their weekly service and on Sundays the College service is held.
