Jenny Fletcher

Director of Sport, 1st Form Tutor

My love of sport started at age 7, on a hockey pitch at St. Mary's Prep Melrose and I hope that, back again in a Prep School, I can help give our pupils the same opportunities to develop a love for sport and a desire to play, at whatever level! Along the way I have experienced teaching in a variety of Schools. I started my PE career at Cheltenham Ladies College and, following a spell as Head of PE at The Mount, York, was latterly Housemistress and Head of Girls Games at Loretto School, Musselburgh.

Having played many different sports, particularly hockey and lacrosse, in my 'youth' the arrival of our twin boys four years ago has slightly curtailed my participation levels. My husband, Michael, and I however, now find ourselves participating in "family" sports such as swimming at Westwoods or cycling in Inverleith Park!

It is wonderful to be back in my home city of Edinburgh, climate notwithstanding, I have yet to find a greater place to live! I spent my teenage years in the New Town where Fettes College was regularly in my sight. I now feel very fortunate to be working at the Prep School, where pupils have so many wonderful opportunities.
