We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Maggie Rait to the post of Housemistress of College East from September 2020. Maggie will be taking over from Lindsay Marks, who will be leaving Fettes this summer to embark on an adventure with her husband in Southern Africa.
Maggie began teaching English at Fettes in 2018 and with a wealth of experience in academic and pastoral leadership, swiftly became a respected member of the Fettes community.
Alongside teaching English, Maggie is currently Assistant Housemistress of Glencorse House and before that a tutor in College West. As Fettes’ Director of Service, she also plays an instrumental role in ensuring that every student is fully engaged in our service programme. She is passionate that each student is given the opportunity to develop new skills whilst gaining confidence and self-awareness through helping others.
Maggie is married to Mark and they have two children, Beau and Gracie. Maggie told us:
“College East is full of kind and welcoming young women and we are looking forward to getting to know them all so we can help them develop the emotional strength required to lead meaningful and useful lives.”
