Moredun

Housemaster - Charles Du Vivier

Known as a small and friendly house, Moredun is home to over 60 Moredun men, from Third Form to Lower Sixth. We aim to provide a supportive family atmosphere where our young men can flourish and feel immediately secure.

Home from home

Kirsty and I, our children Lottie and Hector, and Poppy the bearded collie, are proud to call Moredun home. We very much see the House and its residents as an extension of our own home and family, supporting them in all they do, operating an open door policy and regularly feeding and entertaining Moredunians throughout the term.

“Never, never give up”

Winston Churchill’s inspiring words, “Never, never give up” form the basis of Moredun’s ethos. Our men are encouraged to participate, strive for success and be tenacious in any and all areas of life. The whole Moredun community benefits from this belief that self-improvement is ongoing and leads to success in all areas: as sportsmen, academics, dramatists, debaters, musicians and friends.

The Moredun Team

The boys and I are equally lucky to be supported by a strong team, brimming with experience, enthusiasm and energy. Our Matron, Mrs Stewart ensures that everything runs like clockwork, while our excellent new Resident Tutor, Mr McCowan Hill, is an asset not only to the Third Form he tutors but also to the house as a whole. Weekly tutorials with the experienced team of visiting tutors also help the boys to feel valued, supported and challenged.
