Independent School Spotlight

Fettes College

Edinburgh, Lothian

Co-ed

Full Boarding

Fettes College is a remarkable school with a long history of providing opportunities for people from all backgrounds. The College has a tradition of excellence in academic, sporting and cultural activities and we encourage our pupils to stretch and challenge themselves in everything they undertake. Our pupils benefit from the wide range of activities they can enjoy in our beautiful grounds as well as being able to take advantage of the proximity of the centre of Edinburgh and the outdoors beyond. Happy children learn. They need to have the freedom to learn about themselves, to develop confidence in their abilities and to understand how to work alongside others. We are conscious of the challenges that young people face and do our utmost to ensure a stable, caring community. We want our pupils to feel valued as individuals and fully supported in achieving their best. We hope to ensure that our students leave Fettes as kind, interesting, independent minded individuals who are willing to take on responsibility and motivated to contribute to society. We aim for them to have the strongest possible foundations for their future. Do come and visit the College so that you can experience for yourself the energy and enthusiasm of our staff and pupils.

What are UK 'Independent Schools'?

A UK Independent School is independent of its finances and governance and typically charges fees for attendance instead of being funded by the UK Government. Pupils at Independent Schools (synonymous with ‘Private Schools') don’t have to follow the national curriculum.

Ofsted inspects half of all UK Independent Schools. The Independent Schools Inspectorate inspects schools that are members of the associations that form the Independent Schools Council. The School Inspection Service inspects some other schools.

Independent Schools are typically governed by a board of governors that is elected independently of government and has a system of governance that ensures its independent operation.

Independent Schools in the United Kingdom play a central role in education both UK & International students contribute over £9.5 Billion to the UK economy.
