With over 25 sports and 520 teams, from grassroots to international representation, our sports offering and Spartan spirit inspires our students to be involved, develop and be the best they can be. Sport is a compulsory part of the Somerset Experience for all of our students from Pre-Prep to Year 12.

At Somerset College, we believe sport is a fundamental part in providing a well-rounded education.  

Sport builds overall health and wellbeing, as well as enhancing co-ordination and skills development. It also teaches students how to co-operate and work with others to accomplish a common goal, setting and achieving personal goals, building a sense of fair play and adherence to rules, learning how to both win and lose graciously and learning how to overcome disappointments.  

Besides all the theoretical reasons, sport is great for the sheer enjoyment of it. Each year level from Pre-Prep to Year 12 enjoys the support, expert knowledge and training of specialist Physical Education teachers and specialist sport coaches. 

Sporting activities play an important role in a student's life at Somerset College.  Somerset offers a broad range of sporting activities for all students and these include team sports, individual sports, club sports, house sports, representative sports and a wide range of recreational activities. Alongside these, there are many opportunities to pursue sport at an elite level. 

The biggest thing for me as a parent is to see my daughter develop and grow into a well-rounded individual. In my opinion, Somerset College is instrumental in supporting, encouraging and at times challenging my daughter into being the very best that she can be both academically and sportingwise via a thoroughly supportive environment delivered by many passionate and amazing teachers and staff.
