Matthew Bywater

P Form Tutor & Head of IT

First venturing North of Hadrian’s Wall to study Economics at the University of Stirling I have since spent time working back in England before the lure of Edinburgh and further study became too strong. Joining the school initially as a Graduate Assistant after studying Sports & Business Management at the University of Edinburgh I then completed my PGCE qualification through the University of Buckingham whilst also teaching at Fettes.

I have a love of all sports with rugby, American football and cricket at the top of the list. The first two now being limited to being a ardent spectator, whilst I have been known to still turn over my arm for an over or ten during the summer months. With the love of sport I thoroughly enjoy all the sport on offer at the school and supplement the main three sports with a dose of golf and basketball through the year.

Alongside sport, technology plays a big part in my professional and personal life. Photography and computing are two things that I am passionate about and enjoy developing within the school and the extra-curricular program.
