College East

Housemistress - Lindsay Doig

The College East Girls love living at the heart of the school, amongst the turrets and gargoyles, and it is in this unique setting that firm friendships and house loyalty are developed. They pride themselves in creating an inclusive environment where friendships span the year groups and everyone feels valued. They are known for their kindness but they are also ambitious and they compete in house events with courage and optimism.

I have been at Fettes for four years as a Teacher of Mathematics, Resident Tutor and latterly Housemistress. I value time spent coaching in the games programme and have enjoyed being part of various overseas trips and tours. Edinburgh provides a super base for pursuing my interests in sailing and trail running.

East girls are encouraged to pursue their talents in all areas of school life and to be open to new challenges. All of the house staff and the girls themselves play a part in motivating each individual to make the most of the many opportunities available.

House Staff

We are supported in house by our wonderful matron Mrs Alice Harrison who ensures everything runs smoothly and provides a listening ear throughout the day. Miss Clare McDonnell continues as Assistant Housemistress and will guide the Third Form through their first year in school and a dedicated team of tutors provide pastoral and academic support to the students.
