Webster House

Webster House is named after the artist Thomas Webster, who was part of the 19th century Cranbrook Colony, living and painting in Cranbrook. The new, all-inclusive Webster House brings together what had previously been Webster Girls and Webster Boys, traditionally made up of girls and boys living in the Cranbrook and Sissinghurst areas.

The house seeks to promote a model in which students feel ownership of the House in its academic, social and sporting activities, supported by highly experienced and sympathetic staff through pastoral and academic guidance. The older students also mentor the younger members of the House leading to a very supportive ethos. Our House motto is “Be All You Can” and Webster members are encouraged to live up to this, both in school and in their lives outside the classroom.

All members take part in house sport events donning the house colours (green and yellow), something which has become rather competitive in the last few years as Webster has won the House Cup for a few years running now. The house also comes together for the Singing Competition (also known as the House Shout), in a valiant attempt to prove that, even if we are not the most talented singers, we are certainly the loudest!
