Inter-School Sport

Somerset offers a broad range of sporting activities for all students, as well as many opportunities to pursue sport at a more elite level. We are a member of the Associated Private Schools competition, a group of eight schools across the Gold Coast.

All students from Years 4 to 12 participate in winter and summer inter-school sport, as well as Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.

Junior School sport (Years 4 to 6) is held on Thursday afternoons with after school training on Tuesday afternoons from 3.30pm to 4.30pm. Senior School sport (Years 7 to 12) is held on Friday afternoons with after school training on Monday or Wednesday afternoons from 3.30pm to 5.00pm. Sport and after school training is a compulsory activity for all Somerset students.

We have specialised coaches for many sports, and offer elite programmes in Athletics, Swimming, Tennis, Rowing, Basketball, Soccer, Rugby and Netball, as well as specialised programmes for both sprinters and middle distance runners. We are proudly the “Somerset Spartans”.
