Sommerville Joins Bronte College
During the past years, we have been working on exciting opportunities. At Bronte College, it is important to continue our commitment to providing a quality education to the students and always improve the experience of valued parents. It is for this reason that we have chosen to bring about a change that will see the school grow and flourish in the years ahead.
As we go into the new school year, we are pleased to announce that Sommerville Manor School will be joining the Bronte College family, a change that will enrich the social and academic environment in the school.
Being in continuous operation since 1974, Bronte College is a private International Baccalaureate (IB) World and Advanced Placement (AP) school offering Preschool through Grade 12 and a boarding program for students in Grades 9 to 12. As an IB World School, we are Peel Region’s first private school authorized to offer the Primary Years Programme and a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme. In addition to academic programs, Bronte College strongly encourages a well-rounded education through extra-curricular activities and sports. Students are involved in various artistic, athletic and community endeavours. Graduates have gained admissions to top universities in Canada and around the world, including direct entry to medical and law schools in the U.K.
As we watch our learning community continue to grow, we are committed to continuously improve the experience of valued parents, as well as the education provided for all students. We will be introducing the IB Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme to the Sommerville Manor community, where Mrs. Johnson will continue as Principal.
At Bronte College, staff are highly trained and experienced in delivering outstanding academic programs for students on an international tier. Over the summer, additional training and continuous professional development of staff will be provided in order to offer an enhanced and current education for all students. As we implement the Middle Years Programme in the upcoming year, teachers will be provided with required training. In making a commitment to the IB program, we are pleased to inform you that Mrs. Murphy will be taking the role of the IB Coordinator for all divisions of Bronte College. Through this pivotal role as the overall IB Coordinator, Mrs. Murphy will oversee the continuous development and implementation of the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme at Bronte College. Please visit www.ibo.org/programmes/index.cfm for more information on the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme.
In response to this growth, Sommerville Manor School will become part of Bronte College Junior School and will be located at 1135 Central Pkwy W. Mississauga, ON L5C 3J2.
