When boys walk through the portals of The Doon School, it takes a while to let go of the apron strings and settle down. The extra care and concern so needed at that stage is ensured by housing the young D Formers in two holding houses under the personal care of a Housemaster, an Assistant Housemaster, Dames and a team of Tutors.
Named after the first Headmaster of The Doon School, Arthur E. Foot, the Foot House is one of the two holding houses and was rebuilt in 2005. This building currently houses 40 Grade-7 (D Form) boys who join the school each year. Well lit and airy dorms with attached bathrooms, a well furbished common room, rooms for ‘toye’ and two basket ball courts are some of the features of this facility.
The house also provides connected residential accommodation for the Housemaster as well as Dame, ensuring close supervision and attention.
