At Somerville House, we believe in the boundless potential of every student. We understand that every student has unique strengths and challenges. We strive to provide a supportive and inclusive environment where every student can flourish.

We seek to nurture the whole person, to fuel the fires of creativity, resilience, and empathy. We inspire our students to become changemakers, to engage with their communities and to ignite positive change. 

We encourage our students to cultivate their creativity, fortitude, and empathy, and to become active and engaged members of their communities. 

We believe that education is not just about acquiring knowledge, but about empowering young women through education. 

“We put girls first. We have been developing girls’ talents and empowering young women for 125 years. We remain steadfastly committed to providing high-quality teaching in a forward-thinking, diverse and nurturing environment. Where girls can be themselves, develop a wide range of skills and thrive during their formative years." - Dr Sandra Hastie (Principal)
