In the Junior High School, students are studying a curriculum which is loosely aligned to the CAPS curriculum, with added enrichment as preparation for the Cambridge curriculum in the Senior High School.


In the Senior High School, the Cambridge IGCSE examinations are written in Grade 10/11 and the AS Level examinations are written in Grade 12.

The Cambridge examinations are set and marked by a department of the University of Cambridge and the results are accepted by HESA for university entrance and by SAQA for National Senior Certificate equivalence.


The Cambridge student is creative, innovative, critical, analytical and enquiring. These qualities are valued by university lecturers and future employers. Numbers of our school leavers go on to study at the  University of Stellenbosch, the University of Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, as well as other educational institutions around the country.
