If you are overseas and considering Somerhill for your child but are not able to visit, we can arrange video meetings or phone calls with the relevant Headteachers to help you get to know the school. You can also explore our school virtually through our website pages.
We make a few adjustments to the admissions process for children living overseas. For example, we might replace the taster session with a review of reports and online contact with their current class teacher or headteacher. If we agree that Somerhill is a good fit, we will offer a place in writing, and we will ask you to pay a term’s fees in advance along with the acceptance deposit of £500.
