At Somerville House, we believe that scholarships play an important role in fostering a culture that celebrates and values achievement, diversity and the pursuit of personal excellence. Scholarship opportunities can also have a profound impact on the lives of deserving students and help nurture the next generation of future leaders.
Through the generosity of our Foundation’s benefactors, a number of scholarships are awarded each year to students who might not normally be able to attend our School. Our Foundation also assists current members of our School community who may be experiencing financial difficulty through the provision of bursaries.
Our Foundation is devoted to providing exceptional learning opportunities for Somerville House students to inspire and encourage them to become the best they can be. Committed to securing the future of Somerville House, our Foundation strives to foster a culture of philanthropy and warmth of spirit throughout our School community.

As a tax-deductible fundraising vehicle, our Foundation partners with the School to deliver programs and projects that have a lasting and personal impact on the educational journey of Somerville House students. It does so through raising and managing funds via appeals, events and initiatives to support scholarships and bursaries, and assist the School with its present and future development priorities.
Our Foundation supports the School’s strong commitment to delivering a relevant, first-class learning environment that facilitates exceptional learning outcomes for our students.
It does so by financially contributing to the development of our educational facilities and resources, in line with the School’s Master Plan (A 2025 Vision), to ensure that our students are continually inspired, engaged and challenged to reach their potential.
In recent years, the Somerville House Foundation has supported our School’s ongoing campus development through the following capital projects:
