(1805 – 14 May 1881), was a Jamaican-born woman of Scottish and Creole descent who set up a 'British Hotel' behind the lines during the Crimean War, which she described as "a mess-table and comfortable quarters for sick and convalescent officers," and provided care for wounded servicemen on the battlefield. She was posthumously awarded the Jamaican Order of Merit in 1991. In 2004 she was voted the greatest black Briton.
"….and the grateful words and smile which rewarded me for binding up a wound or giving a cooling drink was a pleasure worth risking life for at any time."
House Leader - Mrs H Clarke
Well done to the Seacole prize winners this term and especially to Lara Ayodele who has the most point in the entire school.
The Year 7 Seacole girls have raised over £93 for local charity Southport crib which helps needy families. They raffled off an easter hamper full of goodies and sold tickets every break and lunch for a week. Well done girls, a superb effort.
