Message from the Principal
I welcome you to Somerville School, Vasundhara Enclave, a Christian unaided Senior Secondary school in Delhi, recognized by the Department of Education, Government of the NCT of Delhi, and affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi.
Over four and a half decades of its existence since 1974, Somerville School, Delhi, has carved an indelible space for itself as an educational institution of excellence. The school has been carefully nurtured through a sound balance of quality educational programmes, state-of-art facilities, superior services and a focus on the child as the reason for our existence.
The students of Somerville learn a variety of things at school, particularly what they would like to “do” when they grow up; we also try to make them think about what they would like to “be” – in terms of character and values that would last, as they try to make their place in the world.
Our teachers are carefully selected and undergo constant training to upgrade their knowledge of the subjects they teach, as well as to improve their skills to meet the demands of the relentlessly changing world around them. Four of them have been conferred the State Teacher’s Award by the Government of Delhi for their exceptional contributions in the field of education of school students.
Our history of accomplishments in academics, sports, dance, music, public service, speak for the quality of students the school has produced; global citizens yet steadfast in their loyalty to the nation; strong moral and ethical values; advocates of worthy causes and concerned about the family and community.
The school has sent out alumni that have helped build the country, from bureaucrats to technocrats, officers of the armed forces, scientists, economists, social workers, doctors, teachers, architects, shaping every aspect of human society.
“Give us wisdom to always do
What is just, what is right, what is fair
And we’ll strive to spread Your word everywhere
With Your love, guidance and care”
These words from the Somerville School song encapsulate our vision of education.
In a world groping for meaning and purpose, we learn to seek God’s wisdom to be torchbearers of the truth and to equip young lives to make worthy and positive choices each day.
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 (The Holy Bible)
