Principal's welcome

Welcome to Somerset Hills State School, a Prep to Year 6 school which prides itself on a strong history of academic, sporting, cultural and community excellence. We provide each student with a pathway for personal success and achievement that is connected to the world beyond the classroom and will continue in their life at high school.

We are passionate about your child, our student, and provide a warm and supportive environment in which all children can grow and learn with confidence. Underpinned by our school values of Quality Teaching and Learning, Respectful, Supportive Relationships, Life-long Learning, Reflective Practices and High Expectations we develop the ‘whole child’ by focusing on a student’s signature strengths to realise their character and achieve to their potential.

Student wellbeing is interwoven into the very fabric of our School and parents are encouraged and supported to become equal partners in their child’s learning. This creates a community where students have a strong sense of belonging and connectedness, feel safe, valued and are happy. 
Our staff are passionate professionals who are committed to helping students successfully achieve, no matter what it takes. We encourage innovation and promote a culture where skills, knowledge and understanding are developed so that our students are ready for the world in which we live. Our dedicated teachers take great pride in creating rich and engaging educational programs that provide appropriate intellectual challenges and encourage all students to continually flourish. 
Somerset Hills State School also offers many programs which provide all students with the opportunity to perform to the best of their ability and develop their individual talents in the academic, cultural, community and sporting arenas. Our facilities include a renovated pool, 3 ovals including 2 multi-purpose courts and hall with our learning spaces undergoing extensive upgrades in 2017 to further enhance our academic and co-curricular programs and activities. 
The school prides itself on having very high expectations in terms of achievement, behaviour, attendance and appearance. It is important to us that all members of our School community understand and support the high expectations of being a Somerset Hills student.
There is so much to see and enjoy at Somerset Hills State School – I invite you to visit and experience firsthand the many ways in which our great school can provide an outstanding education for your child. I know that you will feel right at home in our very special community.
