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 Golden, Housemistress Mrs Budd and Matron Mrs Hole. You can follow Macmillan’s news on Twitter @Macmillan_House.
Meet the Houseparents
Housemaster: Mr Danny Golden
Mr Golden is also Pastoral Support Assistant in the school and has a great rapport with the students who come to him with their problems both in school and in the boarding house. A keen sportsman and traveller to far-flung places, he can also be found on the slopes, taking part in the colour runs, knocking a ball about or organising a boarding trampolining trip to Bristol’s Airhop – generally, he enjoys the trips even more than the students!
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.
Macmillan House Tutors: Mrs Linda Errington, Miss Laura Merrifield
