Hopeman

Mrs Diana Monteith, Housemistress

Hopeman House, on the western edge of the estate, was named in honour of the delightful Hopeman fishing village that lies close by. It is one of the three girls’ boarding houses at Gordonstoun and I live in a bungalow attached to the House with my husband, son and Rosie the cat. My door is always open and the girls are often invited into the flat for brews, birthdays, or a film night on a leave out weekend.

Hopeman House Matron, Mrs Hargreaves (affectionately referred to as ‘Mrs H’), is at the centre of life in the House, in every sense of the word, and neither myself or the girls could manage without her! She is present in the House from 9am until 5.30pm every weekday and from 9am until 1pm on Saturdays. Hopeman's Assistant Housemistress, Miss Buchan, lives in a self-contained flat within the House, so at any time of the day or night there is one or more staff available for the girls. Each week-night one of our excellent team of tutors is also present in the House between 7pm and 10pm to meet with members of their tutor group and discuss their progress - both academic and extra-curricular - as well as just have a general chat about how things are going and the girls really value this personal time.

Hopeman is known for being a particularly friendly House. Over the years it has been home to many different nationalities and has a celebrated diversity that is enriching and mutually supportive. A warm welcome awaits any visitors to Hopeman House but for Hopeman girls it is simply Home.
