Students attending Somerset College can use various modes of transport to reach the College. On this page, we have provided a summary of key information about getting to and from the College.

Cars

For students arriving by car, specific drop off areas exist for each of the different year levels. To view the drop off and parking procedure information, refer to the resources section on this page. We thank you for your adherence to these procedures. The College is a 10 kilometre per hour zone and we remind you to be alert at all times for the presence of children. Car parking options are provided for parents, staff and visitors.

Bicycles

All students who ride bicycles to the College must wear a safety helmet. They may ride to school in sports uniform but must change into normal day uniform for classes. Bike racks are provided and students are required to lock their bicycles during the day.

Buses

Several bus companies provide transport options for students attending Somerset College.

Surfside Buslines operates numerous services for students travelling to and from Somerset College. As this is an independent service, we advise all students to check the Surfside Buslines website for up to date details prior to starting the school year. Please also be advised that Surfside only operate their school services on State Government School days. All fare assistance information is also contained on their website.
