FCLC Edinburgh

Fettes Centre for Language & Culture

Welcome to Fettes Centre for Language & Culture (FCLC Edinburgh), an independent English language school at Fettes College, Edinburgh, Scotland. Our programme is designed to give our students constant opportunities to use English while learning about Scottish culture. As students come to us from around the world, it is also designed to promote kindness, understanding and respect of others.  Through our weekly themes, we also want to make our students think and to build their confidence in and outside the class.


FCLC Edinburgh

Established in 2006 and accredited by the British Council in 2008, we aim to provide a high-quality programme for all our students. Based at the beautiful and historic Fettes College, we welcome students from around the world to learn, develop and use real English and communicate about important ideas. The combination of lessons, activities, sports, excursions and on-campus accommodation helps students develop friendships within a safe, positive environment. While our programme is fun, it is also demanding, and is meant for those who want to get the maximum benefit from a short stay in the UK.  Constant stimulation means constant learning!

Who's it for

Our summer programme is for students aged 10 to 17, with different classes for older and younger students. The programme keeps our students active, safe and motivated at all times while offering as many learning opportunities as possible. We are an independent centre offering lessons, accommodation, meals and activities within our secure and beautiful campus.

An amazing

place to learn a language

The Fettes College campus has 90 acres of private grounds, two miles from Edinburgh Castle and just outside the New Town and city centre. There is so much to see and do in our amazing city and we love sharing it with our students. We have it all, from museums to castles, and shopping to palaces. If that isn’t enough, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest international arts and culture festival, is at the same time as Week 6 of our programme.

Whether your child arrives at Edinburgh International Airport or one of the city’s two major train stations, it’s only a short journey to Fettes College, where they will be welcomed by our friendly team. We are just 25 minutes by coach from the airport and 15 minutes from each train station.
