About Us
Our Unique Structure

A very special school with a unique structure in this part of the world, Somerhill offers the best of co-education and single-sex schooling on one wonderful site.

Boys and girls attend our co-educational Pre-School and Pre-Prep from age 2 to 7. Boys then join Yardley Court and girls join Derwent Lodge, for single-sex classes in a co-educational environment, sharing facilities and opportunities equally. Within this structure, our pupils have the space to follow their curiosity and unlock their potential.



We are housed in a beautiful Grade I listed Jacobean mansion with 150 acres of beautiful parkland, and we make the most of this by blending indoor and outdoor learning throughout the school day.

Ours is a mixed ability school, and we offer a varied and creative curriculum supported by excellent music, science, engineering, art and sport facilities, all of which help children gain technological know-how alongside traditional skills.
