Academics

Grade 8 and 9 – School times are 07:30-14:30.  Because of minimal wasted time during the day we can not only meet the requirements of the CAPS curriculum but have additional activities.to develop reading and mathematical skills.

Grades 10-12 – School times are 07:30 – 15:00.  We work on an 8 subject day which also allows supervised self-study time during the normal school day. During this time learners set goals and supervising staff check that these goals have been met. 

Academic Support

After school, extensive academic support is provided between 15:00 and 16:00, Monday to Thursday, at no extra charge.

We follow the CAPS curriculum for Grades 8-12 and Grade 12 learners write the external National Senior Certificate

at the end of the year.
