Mary Seacole was a Jamaican-born business woman and nurse who provided care for sick and wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. Her work included visiting the battlefield, sometimes under fire, to nurse the wounded. She faced discrimination, being of mixed Jamaican and Scottish heritage, but she was determined to help, and she extended her kindness and care to enemy soldiers. In 2003, Mary Seacole was voted by the Greatest Black Briton by the British public.
“Mary Seacole is a renowned and celebrated nurse pioneer… She epitomises what can be accomplished when you have vision, resilience, determination and passion.” Joan Myers OBE – Child Nurse Consultant
Head of House: Miss Maisey
“I am extremely proud to be Head of House Seacole; a House that epitomises the legacy of our figurehead in the kindness, fairness and team-spirit that we Seacolians extend towards each other, and the whole of the school community. Seacolians should aspire to support others, work hard and be proud to celebrate their achievements. I hope that every Seacolian feels empowered to approach challenges and is inspired to always try something new.”

“I am extremely delighted to be Seacole’s House Captain. House Seacole has always been very supportive and encouraging to each other, as all individuals are very talented and they all have special qualities in them, which makes our house unique from others. Mary Seacole is an incredible idol to look up to as she teaches us valuable skills that everyone should have.
