St. Cakes game for large groups

In reviewing the page on St. Cakes, it stated that when the guests arrive that each house has its own Head of House, Prefect or Swot. I am not understanding what that means.

Do the guests divide up into groups? Also, do they have questions that they may ask preprinted or do they come up with their own?

Do the characters that have parts mingle and talk per a pre-printed roles?

My response:

Yes, the guests in St. Cakes are split up into groups or teams representing school "houses". If you're not sure what a school house is, think of Gryffindor or Slytherin in the Harry Potter books and films. To make the game scale from 40 to 200 guests, some roles are repeated in each house - so each house has a Head, a Prefect and a Swot.

While there are some announcements, everyone is free to mingle and try to complete their goals and solve the murder. Nobody has any pre-printed questions - everyone comes up with their own.
