  • I went to see the memorial park, but there were a lot of ordinary school buildings. The church in front has a strong erstwhile presence.

  • This is no tourist destination, is the school. Certainly the history of the school located next to the building, but in tourist destinations will not need not come here.

  • My daughter loves Somerville House. She is also very proud of her green uniform. My husband and I are both in education and we know what a good school is. Yes it is expensive but well worth it. The girls at Somerville are very respectful and many of their parents work hard to pay the fees (like us). Again, it is worth it. The academic, sporting, music and service opportunities all contribute to her growing into a responsible, hard working young woman who I am so very proud of.
  • Really good school! Love being able to attend it. Nice girls and good education. Everyone is so nice and the teachers are really supportive.
