Somerville House is a Prep to Year 12 school for girls, with boarding available from Year 6. In addition, the School's Early Learning Centre offers a co-educational Pre-Prep program. 

Key intake years for the School are:

  • Pre-Prep
  • Prep
  • Year 3
  • Year 5
  • Year 7
  • Year 10 

A student wishing to enter the School at an alternative year level will be accommodated as places become available. Placements by year level are limited and early registration is recommended. Waiting lists are carefully maintained and updated regularly.

Let's get started...

Step 1

Complete the Application for Registration Form. All applications require a
non-refundable fee of $350 per student.

Step 2

Approximately two years prior to your child's expected start date, you will be invited to attend an Information Session and Tour of the School, hosted by the Principal and key members of staff.

The Information Session will provide you with current information about the School, our expectations and requirements, and provide you with an opportunity to ask further questions. Alternative options will be made for boarding families who are unable to attend the session.

Step 3

Following this information session, a link to our online Application for Enrolment Form will be emailed to you for completion. Additional required documentation may also be requested. The completion of the Application for Enrolment Form does not guarantee acceptance of your child’s enrolment.  

Step 4

Upon receipt of your completed Application for Enrolment Form, you and your child will be invited to attend an interview to discuss your application. Alternative provisions will be made for boarding families who are unable to attend an interview at the allotted times.  

After all interviews with prospective families have been completed, the Principal will make offers for placements approximately 18 months before the expected entry date to the School. 

Due to a limited number of placements not all students who are interviewed will be offered places in the School.

Step 5

Upon receipt of an offer of enrolment, you will be required to confirm your acceptance by signing the official Written Agreement and paying a non-refundable acceptance fee of $1,200. 

At the commencement of Term 3 in the year before entry, a confirmation fee of $3,000 must be paid and will be credited to the first fee instalment in the entry year.
