This is a list of clothing and equipment required by Senior Girls’ at Fettes College.  The majority of items are available from the Fettes College Shop, full contact details are given below.  The School Shop is managed by Fettes College staff; we supply Fettes school uniform, sportswear and sportswear equipment, stationery, academic books, trunks and tuck boxes and other essentials to life at Fettes.  Any surplus profit made by the shop is put back in to the school. 

The shop is open during term time Monday to Friday from 9am – 3pm, and Saturdays from 9.30am – 12 noon. Full details of holiday opening hours will be sent out separately.


Direct line:  0131-311-6723

The shop accepts all major credit and debit cards and we are very happy to manage orders by phone, fax or e-mail if it is difficult to come to the shop in person; however we do recommend that new pupils try on their clothes before the start of term to ensure that they have the correct size.

During term time pupils and parents can purchase items from the shop and charge them to the school bill, you will then receive a detailed invoice at the end of term attached to the main school bill. 

The Thrift Shop which sells second hand items is now part of the main school shop.

All items must be clearly named before arriving at school, with the pupils name and the appropriate House letters after.
