Opened in 1994, Macmillan is named after Old Sexeian Douglas Macmillan, who also founded Macmillan Cancer Care (the School’s charity). Over ninety girls and boys are supervised by Housemaster Mr Straker-Nesbit, Housemistress Mrs Budd and Matron Mrs Hole. You can follow Macmillan’s news on Twitter @Macmillan_House.
Meet the Houseparents
Housemaster: Mr Charlie Straker-Nesbit
Mr Straker-Nesbit is also a Geography teacher in school and together with his young family (and dog) brings an air of authority to the house. Always keen to get involved, he keeps the Macmillan activity agenda packed with plenty to do!
Housemistress: Ms Janie Budd
Students love Ms Budd for her warmth and empathy – both qualities that make her such an excellent Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) at the school. Ms Budd is also the inspiration behind the school Sanctuary, which provides a safe haven for students who need time to reflect. Watch out, she also has a wicked sense of fun!
Matron: Mrs Lisa Hole
The first port of call for the Macmillan students’ every day living concerns, Mrs Hole keeps the house running smoothly and in ship-shape order.
Assistant Housemaster: Mr Edward Deaney
Assistant Housemistress: Miss Justine Oster
French born Miss Oster joined Sexey’s in 2017 as the Language Assistant in the MFL department. She fell in love with Sexey’s beautiful campus and decided that she wanted to play a part in its future, and so applied for an Assistant Housemistress position in Macmillan. She is passionate about music, and taught herself guitar. She is also studying for a BA degree in English Literature and French as a Foreign Language.
