We are looking to move to Edinburgh and are planning to visit Fettes College. Any insight about the school would be appreciated, especially with regard to disciplinary issues, such as bullying, and what are the academic standards like.

Many thanks.

Think it can be tough being a day pupil rather than boarder...

They follow the International Baccaulauriat at senior level rather than Scottish curriculum or the English A level system. This suits the large proportion of international boarders which are at the school, but may not be ideal for entry in to UK universities. The best way to get a view of the school is to arrange a visit to get a sense of whether it suits your child best.

Good school, but not one that would be on the radar for those that live in Edinburgh. The majority board and as a pp stated they don't follow the Scottish curriculum.
