The Schools at Somerhill

With three schools providing quality education from 3-11 (girls) and 3-13 (boys), Somerhill is a wonderfully happy learning environment. Set in 150 acres of glorious parkland, we offer a wealth of opportunities in a wide range of pursuits and have a strong record of academic success placing children in both grammar and independent schools at 11/13+.

Somerhill Pre-Prep is our school for 3 to 7 year old girls and boys.

“High quality education in a happy environment. Teaching enables pupils of all abilities to make progress. It promotes exploration and independent learning and gives pupils confidence in their abilities.” Independent Schools Inspectorate

Derwent Lodge is our Preparatory School for 7 to 11 year old girls.

“Excellent standards in lessons, in the scholarships and places gained at senior schools. Girls work together exceptionally well and show considerable imagination, independence of thought and flair.” Independent Schools Inspectorate

Yardley Court is our Preparatory School for 7 to 13 year old boys.

“Pupils thrive in the atmosphere of hard work, enjoyment and effort. Their attitude to their work is excellent and they take pride in their achievements and the success of others.” Independent Schools Inspectorate

All three schools are housed in our Grade 1 listed Jacobean mansion with excellent music, science, art, sport, swimming and outdoor play facilities.
