We look forward to honouring our next class of talented graduates.

OUR 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. 

 

 

 

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

I'm currently attending the University of Leeds in the UK, where I'm studying Sports Science and Physiology, and training with the Leeds Triathlon Center. I think Somersfield has changed a lot over the past 25 years, and will continue to change in a positive way. My time there certainly had a major effect on my life, how I think, and the way I learn. Hopefully it will have the same beneficial impact on current and future students.

Class of 2014

Firstly, I cannot believe that it has been 16 years since I graduated and it is 25 years since the opening but I am and always will be an extremely proud founding student. The school has come such a long way since I was there, even though I will always remember Tivoli and my wonderful memories in and around the property. I am looking forward to catching up with my past classmates and celebrating such a momentous milestone. It is impressive that no matter how much time passes by, the same motto of “Teach me to do it myself” & the Montessori way is still so alive.

Class of 2000

This is an amazing milestone for a wonderful institution and I feel very honoured to be one of the founding students.  Whenever I have a young patient who attends a Montessori School, I love talking to the kids and parents about their experience. It provided the foundation and building blocks for my educational journey and career path, and I hope it continues to provide this essential preparation to many more children for years to come.
