Reid’s

Reid's

The house caters to boys from all walks of life and each individual is celebrated all while developing a sense of camaraderie and house spirit.

Reid’s is a special house based on his tradition, facilities, location, and friendly environment. Each boy is made to feel welcome no matter their personality or background and that starts with breakfast in our in-house dining room, a feature specific to Reid’s. Each morning I make a point to touch base with each boy and ensure a positive start to each day. The diverse range of boys we have in the house is what makes it such a special place and one where diversity and originality are paramount. Rich Myers, Housemaster

Reid’s House stands atop the Glenalmond estate overlooking the main college campus.  The house is surrounded by sports pitches, tennis courts and woodland that allows the boys a perfect location for activities. Reid's House has a rich and proud history which is reflected in the boys outlook and the house traditions continue with social events and themed suppers specific to the house.  The house caters to boys from all walks of life and each individual is celebrated all while developing a sense of camaraderie and house spirit. The house motto of ‘Work Like A Champion’ is a reminder that hard work and determination breeds success.
