Iona House

Housemistress - Mrs Burty Scott

Hello! I have been working with children and families for twenty years and this is my 12th year at Fettes but my first as Iona Housemistress.

My husband, is an ex-Royal Engineer, we have been married for 25 years and we have three grown-up children who all went to Fettes.

Hamish is out 10 year old Border Terrier, he loves cuddles and having his tummy rubbed. He is a very quiet dog so you may not even notice him.
We are a very close family who look forward to welcoming you and your daughters as part of our extended family.

Team Iona

Our fabulous team are here to help, chat, and keep things ticking along.
We have a tutor in house each evening who helps the girls with their evening routines, so they can then enjoy fun with their housemates.
We also have a matron in each evening who provides house snacks and drinks (as well as basic first aid and medicine distribution if needed) plus a lot more!

Taster sessions

We would love you to visit us in person to see our house for yourselves. If your daughter would like, she can also have an overnight taster session to see what life at Fettes Prep and Iona is really like.
