House System

While guidance in its widest context is considered to be a whole school function and will remain the responsibility of everyone within the School, the House System plays the key role in this organisation with House Staff having special responsibility for the guidance of pupils.

The House System in the Senior School consists of four houses - Bannerman, Clyde, Law and Moore - named after four distinguished former pupils.

Within the system, senior pupils are given the opportunity to display leadership qualities, to take responsibility and provide support for new and younger pupils.

Any matters that parents of S1 to S6 pupils wish to discuss are dealt with by the appropriate member of House Staff in the first instance - They would much rather hear about a problem at an early stage so that we can prevent it from becoming a major worry!

Each House organises outings, social occasions and fundraising for charities, as well as team and individual entrants for competitions and events.

Transitus parents are asked to contact their child's Transitus Form Teacher or Mr Iain Leighton, one of three Deputy Rectors, if there are any matters which you wish to discuss.
