Our Approach

Everything we do at Somerhill is about nurturing children’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm, and helping them achieve their best possible all-round development. Ours is a mixed ability school. We have very bright and capable pupils, some of whom will go on to win scholarships at academic schools. We also have boys and girls who find aspects of their learning more challenging and receive some additional support.

Whatever their ability, all pupils come to school open-minded and inquisitive, and our role is to provide the best setting to help these qualities flourish. We are proud of the wonderful environment we offer. We believe strongly in the balance of nature and technology, and as such there are equal opportunities for both indoor and outdoor learning throughout the day. We treat our whole environment as a classroom.

Our happy, thriving community of pupils, staff and parents, and our strong academic record, show that this approach really works.
