A boarding house MOD with over a decade's worth of experience, Tom was elevated to the role of Head of Boys’ Boarding in July 2021. Tom's new role sees him handle the day-to-day management and operations of Sellars House which houses 37-44 male boarding students during the school term.  

Tom has been a staff member at Scots since 2009 when he took on the role of Pipe Band and Drum Kit tutor which he still holds to this day in conjunction with his position in boarding.  

Tom has transferred his passion, dedication and care for his drum teaching across to his boarding role and loves nothing more than to inspire young men and women to achieve their potential whilst maintaining a positive disposition and cheeky sense of humour.  

Tom completed his first  semester as HOBB in 2021 and is looking forward to his first full year in the role in 2022, working alongside Head of Girls Boarding Elsa Kilgour.
