Founded in 1870, Fettes College is the legacy of Sir William Fettes who, after the death of his son in 1815, devoted his wealth to building a school for children.
The main Bryce building is a magnificent, magical Neo-Gothic masterpiece set in 90 acres of private parkland and is only 25 minutes away from Edinburgh International Airport and 15 minutes from Waverley train station. Within the expansive school grounds there is a wide range of excellent facilities including a drama theatre, music suite, art rooms, tennis and basketball courts, a large indoor multi-purpose sports hall and extensive playing fields for outdoor sports and activities.
