Gavin Pettinger

Director of Music, 1st Form Tutor

I was educated at Strathallan School and studied oboe, cor anglais, piano and singing at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
As an orchestral player, I have had the privilege of playing in some of the world’s most renowned concert halls such as Sydney Opera House, The Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Royal Albert Hall.

I gained my PGCE from Strathclyde University and have taught at various Prep and Senior Schools in Glasgow and London. I am delighted to be returning to Scotland with my family and am looking forward to sharing my passion for music of all genres with the Fettes Prep Children.
In my spare time I look forward to enjoying the wilds of the Highlands either cycling, kayaking or skiing.
