Sellers House is home to all Year 7 and Year 8 students. We meet every day in Tutor Groups and have an assembly every week. In Sellers we believe in working hard, enjoying our learning and being kind to each other. We have lots of social events like Movie Night and Sellers House Disco and we raise money for our school charities. We celebrate our different interests and skills such as sports, music and drama.
Our House Motto is ‘sic itur as astra’ which means ‘thus one journeys to the stars’ because we are named in honour of Old Cranbrookian Piers Sellers who was an Astronaut who took the school’s charter into space. We know we are at the beginning of an exciting journey and the possibilities are limitless.
Mrs Rahtz is Head of Sellers House. Miss Eastwood and Miss Robertson are Year 7 Tutors. Mr Pew, Mr Warren and Mr Case are Year 8 Tutors. Students take it in turns to represent their Tutor Group as student councillors and two students represent Sellers House at the School Student Council. We are always coming up with ideas for how to make our time in school more enjoyable and we are currently working to replant our Quad with flowers and vegetables to create a pleasant wellness garden.
