At Sommerville School students with special needs will learn and grow in an environment where their needs are individually enriched, anchored in educational support with respect, tolerance and acceptance they will develop an awareness of themselves as successful learners.

In particular our students will-

1. Develop knowledge, competencies (which will include skills and abilities), attitudes and values in ways that are relevant and appropriate to them within the context of their ability.

2. Achieve their potential and participate fully in a society which is accepting of them.

3. Be products of a seamless education from early childhood, through the compulsory education sector to adult education through well defined approaches to educating students with special needs.

Sommerville School will continue to pursue the vision of becoming a dual purpose institution being a learning centre for students with special needs and a learning community for special education.
