Our Difference

At Somerset Smyth your child’s success is our priority.

Like you, we want your child to have the foundations to become whatever they chose, to develop the grit and perseverance to succeed when times get tough, to be well rounded, empathetic and respectful and to grow into fully contributing members of society.

At Somerset Smyth we believe that this is achieved through:

  • Building strong, respectful partnerships with families.
  • Providing a purposeful educational programme based on how children learn.
  • Providing a structured, educational environment rich in language, literacy and early mathematical experiences.
  • Encouraging positive social interactions.
  • Celebrating success!
  • Having fun together!

We are looking forward to meeting you & your family.
