Nowhere is the celebrated Somerville House spirit more evident than among its Boarding community. Friendship, a sense of belonging, and the shared commitment to growing, living and learning in a contemporary location in the cultural heart of Brisbane, makes Somerville House a world-class boarding experience.  

More than one hundred students from a diverse and culturally-rich range of backgrounds call Somerville House, home. Each year, the renowned school has a large percentage of girls come from rural and regional areas that may not offer the educational opportunities and resources Somerville House students enjoy and embrace. 

Boarding is offered to students in Years 6 to 12 and incorporates purpose-built, contemporary and secure amenities.  Occupying designated levels in two campus buildings, the Boarding House has modern, air-conditioned facilities including shared leisure and kitchen areas, supervised study rooms and balconies overlooking the city.

Consistently performing among the top schools in Australia, Somerville House provides each student with a first-class education and well-rounded schooling experience, inspiring and encouraging them to develop their individual sense of purpose.

Our qualified staff encourage our students to take ownership, problem-solve and be accountable.  We challenge students to become innovative leaders, conscious of their strengths, and equipped with the initiative to respond to the challenges and opportunities they face in their lives, and the ability and willingness to honourably influence those around them. 

Somerville House provides a true home away from home; a secure and supportive world of opportunities.
