Somerville House

South Brisbane QLD

Founded in 1899, Somerville House is the leading Presbyterian and Uniting Day and Boarding School for girls, providing empowering education for girls from Prep to Year 12 and co-educational pre-Prep. Boarding is offered to girls from Years 6 to 12.

Academically, Somerville House stands as one of Australia’s finest. With outstanding facilities for music, performing arts, cultural pursuits, and sports, combined with one of Australia’s leading technology programs, our students graduate with a much broader education than can be provided by an academic curriculum alone.

Our school provides a comprehensive, balanced educational environment that recognises the importance of academic excellence as well as psychological, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Located in South Brisbane in an enviable position overlooking the Brisbane city skyline, Somerville House focuses on girls’ education, development, and well-being, providing a personalised learning experience in an environment where girls can be fearless leaders of change. With us, they can develop confidence, pursue excellence and find their purpose.
