Somerville House is a day and boarding school for girls, established in 1899. It is located in the inner city Brisbane suburb of South Brisbane just two kilometres from the city centre and directly opposite South Bank parklands.
The School is owned by the Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association (PMSA) and is related thereby to Brisbane Boys College, Clayfield College, and Sunshine Coast Grammar School.
Somerville House provides classes from Preparatory to Year 12, within three sub-schools — Junior (Years Prep to 6), Middle (Years 7 to 9), and Senior (Years 10 to 12). The School provides excellent opportunities for students to participate in an extensive academic, sporting and cultural program, as well as setting high standards in personal care and attention to individuals within the School community.
We are particularly proud of the colour scheme chosen on the decorative ceilings. It was a brave choice by the school but the result is breathtaking.
