Recruiting Great Staff

Georgina Black, Head of Media Studies

Georgina Black with husband, Paul, and daughter Iona

I have worked at Gordonstoun for over 10 years and it has provided such great and differing opportunities to me as a teacher that I have yet to feel the urge to move on. I came as a teacher of English, and over my time here I have become Head of Media, worked as an Assistant House Mistress and Acting House Mistress in Windmill Lodge, been Assistant Child Protection Officer, run the Teaching and Learning Group and run the First Aid Service, there is always another opportunity on the horizon.  Paul, my husband, also works on staff having moved once we got married; he is a trained green keeper, but does not miss the golf course, working on the grounds’ staff at school, which provides him with a variety of landscapes to work on, and a beautiful place to do his job. The Gordonstoun community is the most friendly and supportive, one quickly makes friends for life, it is not so much a job, as a lifestyle and a vocation.

I moved up from London over 10 years ago with a very young family and have been grateful for so many benefits for all of us.  It has been a joy to indulge in all the amazing scenery, coastline and mountains around us, particularly with the children (and me!) learning so many new ways to enjoy themselves outside. The community of staff here is wonderfully welcoming and I am sure that any new member of staff will soon feel part of the Gordonstoun family too.

The pace of life and the proximity of both the Cairngorm Mountains and the Moray Firth have meant that we could not have chosen a better environment to raise our children. There is a real sense of community at Gordonstoun and in Moray; our wee ones will often pop over to visit friends who live on site. We also have the added bonus of working and living in Bruce House, where the Richardson kids have 60-odd big brothers.
