Somerville House in Brisbane is recognised as a landmark in education, throughout Australia and overseas, a school spokesman said.
Established in 1899, Somerville House is a Prep to Year 12 day school for girls and a co-educational school of Pre-Prep, with boarding available from Year 6 to Year 12.
Consistently performing among the top schools in Australia, Somerville House offers a safe and supportive environment with renowned academic, cultural and sporting programs, and modern boarding facilities, he said.
Opened in 2017, the new Somerville House Bauer Building is delivering world-class accommodation and dining facilities for Somerville House boarders, he said.
The facilities are home to Year 11 and 12 boarders, offering luxury and space of twin share bedrooms for Year 11 students, and single bedrooms with shared ensuites for Year 12 boarders.
The elegant and expansive dining hall, the Bentley Room, features an impressive commercial kitchen, timber floors and floor to ceiling glass walls.
A communal terrace area on the 10th floor of the building, offers sweeping views over the city, and a leafy outdoor space for boarders to enjoy barbecues and alfresco lunches.
The central location of Somerville House means students have the cultural heartland of Queensland on their doorstep, with access to South Bank Parklands, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Queensland State Library, Museum and Art Gallery, the Botanic Gardens, and much more.
Somerville House offers a home away from home where friendships are formed and there is a sense of commitment to the fullness of life and learning.
Somerville House looks forward to welcoming families to Beef Australia, and invites them to visit the admissions manager and head of boarding at Stand 42 in the Sidney Kidman Pavilion.
