Fettes College

Fettes is nicknamed ‘the Eton of the north’, and it’s easy to see why.

    Fettes gives up to 100 per cent fee remission through its means-tested bursary scheme, with additional support (for example, for sports trips or choir tours) available when necessary. These awards are reliant upon completion of a full financial history, including a home visit, and are subject to annual review. The school also offers support to existing families whose financial circumstances have changed unexpectedly.

    For more information, please see the school website, which has a pop-out bursary brochure:
