History

Named after the loved and respected 7th Headmaster of Scots and also a soldier, Col Keith William Rutherford Glasgow. (Headmaster 1938-39, on leave 1939-44, 1945-58, the longest serving Headmaster)

  • While under Keith Glasgow’s care, Scots College saw many practical improvements.
  • Although Glasgow spent only twelve months at Scots before war broke out and he volunteered towards the end of 1939, he had already set in train a number of developments which lasted all the time he was at the college.
  • In his first annual report at end of 1938 he took advantage of this early opportunity to make known his views on the need for activities outside the classroom and for vocational and personal guidance of the boys.
  • For the first of these, the development of manual skills and activities within clubs (the drama club. chess, camera, radio and electrical and model aeroplane clubs), he commenced to make provision without delay and within a year the Hobby House where these activities could be practised was completed.
  • The second need that he perceived, for vocational and personal guidance – counselling – he met himself. There were likewise vast improvements in facilities.
