Gordonstoun House

Mr Denyer with his wife and daughter

Gordonstoun House is situated at the heart of the School campus. The boarding house’s position on the top floor of this iconic building means that its residents can enjoy stunning views across both North and South Lawns every day. Such a central location also means important buildings such as the Refectory, Chapel and classrooms are only a short walk away.

As Housemaster, I live in the boarding house with the boys. I am supported by my wife, Helen, along with our daughter, Charlotte, and Labrador, Molly, for company. As a family, it is our intention to create a welcoming ‘home away from home’ for every member of Gordonstoun House. Regular House socials, or ‘brews’, will be central to this, providing the boys the chance to relax together and take a break from their busy schedules. It is our belief that a comfortable, safe foundation is essential for any young individual to thrive and strive towards their ambitions, whatever these may be.

In addition to my family, the boys are supported by a cohesive pastoral team. We benefit hugely from the expertise of our House Matron, Mr McCallum, as well as our Assistant Housemaster, Mr Voller. We also have very experienced Tutors, Mr Morton and Mr Sills, who keep a watchful eye on the boys’ studies, but are also actively involved in all aspects of boarding house life. We work together in order to create an invaluable support network around the boys, ensuring the academic and pastoral welfare of each.

With such a wide range of opportunities as part of a Gordonstoun education, the boys are encouraged to make the most of the challenges that come their way. We are proud of the enthusiastic participation of Gordonstoun House boys throughout the varied curriculum, taking in academics, performing arts, sports and outdoor activities. Equally as important is their commitment to being of service to the community, and undertaking roles of responsibility throughout the School.

Being a relatively small house, there is a strong sense of fellowship among the boys, and it is my ambition that, as a boarding house, we can promote and live by the core values of Gordonstoun.

Mr Ryan Denyer, Housemaster
