Invitation to Open Day 2017

Headmaster GS

My first few weeks as Headmaster have been a whirlwind of information but have served as an excellent introduction to all that Fettes has to offer. The incredible welcome Susanna, my wife, and I have received has already made us feel very much part of this caring, inspiring community.

My intention as Head is to immerse myself in the academic, social and co-curricular life at Fettes in order to fully understand what we offer our students. As well as gathering the thoughts of our current pupils, parents and Old Fettesians, I am of course interested in understanding your impressions of Fettes as prospective parents as you and your children are very much part of the future of Fettes.

It is hard to convey the true energy of Fettes without experiencing it for yourself so there will be various opportunities throughout the year for you and your family to visit Fettes and engage with our pupils and staff.

The Fettes College Open Day on October 8th will be the first such opportunity to visit us. Open Day is a relaxed opportunity to visit both The College and The Prep School, and pupil-led tours will be available for all visitors. There will also be a number of current parents available on Open Day so you can discuss with them their first-hand experiences of what a Fettes education has provided their child.

I look forward to welcoming as many prospective families as possible and sharing with you my vision for Fettes.

To confirm your attendance at Open Day 2017, please simply contact our Admissions Team on and they will be happy to help.
