Plewlands is the largest girls’ boarding House accommodating up to 70 girls. The juniors are roomed in spacious dorms and the Sixth Form usually have their own room.
As Housemistress I live here with my husband Sandy and little boy Dougal, who is very lucky to have so many wonderful big sisters! Our door is always open to the girls and we definitely see them as an extension of our family. As an OG and former Plewlands girl myself I hold the ethos of the school and Kurt Hahn’s philosophy extremely close to my heart. My aim is to encourage the girls to use this as a guide in their lives and become successful individuals in whichever path they choose to follow.
Plewlands is a happy House full of laughter. Integrity, Compassion and Service are at the core of what we believe in and, while we are fortunate to experience all Gordonstoun has to offer, we try and do as much as possible to help our local and wider communities.
Plewlands has a team of highly experienced staff helping to run it. The AHM, Miss Beavan, lives within the House and is of great support to the girls. Our Matron, Mrs Lerner, is also of huge importance to the House; her warm heart and door always open. We also have a team of tutors who guide the girls academically and who play a large role of support in helping the girls develop as individuals.
Most important, is that this is the girls home while they are here during term time and we aim to provide a family atmosphere. The girls are encouraged to take ownership of the House and, as well as having responsibilities for looking after it, contribute ideas to how it can be made to feel their own.
A Gordonstoun life is a busy life and Plewlands is a place to which the girls can come back in the knowledge that it is theirs and they feel at home.
