Somerset College has a rich history that could be dated back to as far as 1983 – its founding year. The College was initially established with 158 learners from Year 1 to Year 8. Today, it provides quality education to approximately 1,600 learners aged 3 – 18 years old.
Situated in Mudgeeraba, a suburb and the heart of the Gold Coast, Somerset College is one of Australia’s leading independent schools, and it is currently one of the best private schools on the Gold Coast.
The College is arguably one of the leading independent schools for learners from Pre-Preparatory up to Year 12.
As in most private schools in Gold Coast, Somerset College consists of two schools: the Junior School and the Senior School.
While the former caters to pupils in the early learning category, i.e., from Pre-Preparatory to Year 6, the latter focuses on providing quality holistically education to students from Year 7 to Year 12 while preparing them for a more challenging journey in the future.
Since its early days, it has successfully achieved a lot of academic accolades. These immense achievements stem from a tangible commitment to excellence and collaboration by the staff members, students, and parents.
More importantly, Somerset College is an Internationa Baccalaureate World School and one of the few private schools in the Gold Coast that offers IB World programs.
As an accredited IB World School, the College offers all three IB programs: The Primary Years Programme (PYP) for Year 1 to Year 5; The Middle Years Programme (MYP) from Year 6 to Year 10; and lastly, Year 11 and Year 12 can opt for IB Diploma Programme or Queensland Certificate of Education, both of which allows for entrance into the tertiary institution.
Somerset College boasts several cutting-edge facilities, with the most notable ones being Performing Arts Center and Sports Precinct.
The latter consists of a fitness center, synthetic running track, an Olympic-sized ten-lane swimming pool, a six-court tennis complex, a rock climbing wall, and sporting fields.
