Fettes Prep provides boarding for boys and girls aged 7-13. We have a wealth of experience in caring for boarding pupils including a high number of Forces and Diplomatic families.

One big family

We think of Fettes Prep as one big family so for a boarder, Fettes Prep becomes their other family home. We have two houses: Arran for the boys and Iona for the girls. The spaces themselves are high quality dorms (sharing 4 to 6) with other rooms for playing games, reading or simply relaxing.

Staff dedicated to your child

The position of Housemaster and Housemistress is taken very seriously, as is the supporting role provided by the house tutors and, of course, matron. The staff at Fettes Prep are of the highest calibre. Experienced and professional, they dedicate themselves to creating a secure and happy home.

Regular communications

Our staff have regular communications with every parent to keep them updated and informed and as every boarder here has their own e-mail address, your child can have daily dialogue with you if they wish.
