The Fettes College Preparatory School English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Department is part of the Languages Faculty at Fettes and has links with all other departments as much of its work is cross-curricular.

Language support

Its aim is to help all pupils whose first language is not English to gain as much as possible from their time at Fettes College both academically and socially.

Small relaxed classes

Until they have a working knowledge of English, pupils whose first language is not English come to EFL classes in place of certain other subjects. EFL classes are small and relaxed and geared to help pupils with their individual language problems.

Building confidence

Our aim is to build up the pupils’ confidence and to integrate them into mainstream subjects as soon as they are ready.
