Hobby, Lanner and Peregrine!

The three “houses” to which the children belong are Hobby (yellow), Lanner (red) and Peregrine (blue). The names are derived from species of falcon; the falcon being the school emblem. Somerset House runs an inter-house competition annually. The houses are led by House Captains and Cheerleaders who are elected from the Grade 7 pupil body. Houses accumulate points throughout the year. Their goal is to win the Midgely Shield, the inter-house floating shield. The following inter-house competitions take place during the course of the year:

  • Athletics Day
  • Cross Country
  • Relay Gala
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • Chess
