All three Houses at Somercotes Academy have the same structure and are governed by the same set of rules that apply to all Somercotes Academy students. Regardless of this, each House has its own identity and Dorado is certainly no exception.
When appointing students to positions of responsibility, we take great care to choose those students who will embrace and uphold the high standards that are expected of Dorado students. Dorado's prefects are Year 11 students who lead by example. They work alongside their Head of House and their form tutors to ensure the welfare of those in their form groups.
Our constellation represents a large predatory fish that was named Dorado by Dutch explorers. It contains most of the large Magellanic Cloud, which is a neighbour galaxy to the Milky Way.
Dorado – what does this mean about us?
Fun facts: Whales (Cetus House) are not fans of Swordfish and tend to steer clear of them and Flying Fish (Volans House) are scared of Swordfish because they hunt them!
