Scott (Girls)

Scott House is named after one of the school’s former headmaster’s – Charles Russell Scott (1898-1979).

The House opened its doors in 1962 and was originally intended for the younger boys in the school (11-13).  Girls were later permitted to attend Cranbrook and in 1973 Scott became the first girls’ boarding house.

Scott accommodates 47 girls and is set in its own grounds, a short walk from the school’s main buildings.  The accommodation at Scott is all on one level which helps to integrate the girls.  Year 9 sleep in two large dorms, Years 10 and 11 have double bed/studies, and in the Sixth Form the vast majority of students have single bed-study rooms.  The House has a number of well-equipped communal areas, comprising a large common room, which is primarily where the juniors watch TV.  There is also a junior kitchen which has full cooking facilities and has recently been refurbished.

The motto of Scott is “To provide a homely environment to enable all Scott girls to feel valued and supported in whatever they do”.  To this end there are a number of regular social events which foster friendships and help build House spirit.  These include  the House Halloween Party, trips to the theatre, restaurant outings; House BBQs in the summer (including a leavers party), the Scott Ball in May, the House play in autumn, the annual House Shout singing festival, and the termly inter-House sporting competitions. Phew!

Head of House – Mrs Kirstie Burnett

Super Friday was a great way to end the half term yesterday. Tense penalty shootouts (Y12), epic rounders contests (Y10)... and if any Sellers students can explain Clackerball to me, I’d love to know! Thank you @cranbrook_sport and Mrs Coleman
