G-House sits at the very heart of Gordonstoun, with incredible views across the grounds from every bedroom window. The group of boys who are lucky enough to call it home enjoy a strong sense of camaraderie which is due, in part, relatively small nature of our boarding house.
I encourage the boys to support one another as a family away from their family. To foster a true sense of inclusivity and belonging, especially to our numerous international boys, everybody is encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to represent the House in the myriad of disparate inter-House competitions over the course of the academic year. From cross-country running to debating or rugby sevens, many boys discover a latent talent or kindle a passion for a sport or skill in which they had previously never tried their hand.
The beating heart of G-House is our exceptional matron, who cares for the domestic and emotional needs and wellbeing of the boys during the busy school day. They are supported in their academic endeavours by our experienced team of tutors, under the watchful eye of myself, our resident Assistant Housemaster, Mr Voller, and Matron, Mr McCallum. There is, however, certainly much more to life in a boarding house than maintaining an air of quiet studiousness, and the G-House staff strive to ensure that the boys are provided with a welcoming, comfortable home-away-from-home. Regular house socials, or “brews”, as well as the occasional rooftop barbecue keep the bonds of our little community strong.
No other boarding house at Gordonstoun allows the boys to get away from it all whilst still being in the centre of everything.
My door is always open, and no matter where you are in the world, I am only a phone call away.
Mr Jack Hoskins, Housemaster
