Adam Edwards

Headmaster - Fettes Prep

I went to school at The Royal Grammar School, Colchester and then to London University where I studied History. My teaching qualification was obtained from Birmingham University, after which I embarked on my career at Gresham’s School, Holt. I was lucky enough to be able to eventually lead the History Department, become a Housemaster and Head of Boarding. I also coached all the major games, was a CCF officer and a D of E instructor and assessor. More significantly, this is where I met my wife Jill. We have four children, 3 boys and a girl. In 2003 we moved to Edinburgh and since then our lives have revolved around leading Fettes College Prep School.

My love of sport, the hills and history has given me a wider perspective which is invaluable when dealing with the everyday rigours of a busy and happy prep school.
