We look forward to honouring our next class of talented graduates.
Our students leave Somersfield with special qualities and are recognized in their future schools as being particularly confident self-motivated learners with an enthusiasm for learning.
Somersfield students who achieve the IB-MYP certificate will have acquired a strong academic foundation and ensured that their plans for the final high school years can be fulfilled. However, it is increasingly accepted that long term success in the 21st century will not be solely based on a traditional academic education.
We pride ourselves in offering an educational programme that teaches about social responsibilities, about the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge, about pursuing truth, peace and individual passions.
We address healthy life choices in order to encourage create healthy life styles. We seek to ensure that our students are good communicators, understand collective responsibility, and understand the need for independence, as well as community.
Our strong student academic results enables us to be able to send our students on to the next stage of their educational journey secure in the knowledge that they are well rounded, insightful, confident and passionate young people who will shine academically and be good global citizens.
Many of our graduates remain in Bermuda to complete their secondary education and for the most part choose to attend other private schools on the island. For those who choose to further their education abroad, approximately half attend schools the USA, with the remainder attending schools in Canada and the UK.
From our analysis of longitudinal statistics, the vast majority of our students who graduate from Somersfield with an MYP certificate, and who go on to challenging IB schools, successfully complete the IB Diploma and are then accepted into competitive colleges and universities in the USA, UK, and Canada.
