At St Andrew’s Junior Prep, understanding that these are the most important years in preparing boys and girls with a strong foundation to education and for a world that demands teamwork and a willingness to keep on learning, we focus on a holistic approach to education.
We understand how different girls and boys are, and hence our unique educational model that we share with Diocesan School for Girls and St Andrew’s College. Classes at St Andrew’s Junior Preparatory are co-educational. From Grade 4, girls move to the Diocesan School for Girls and boys remain at St Andrew’s Preparatory where they will be taught differently, according to the varying needs of pre-pubescent boys and girls.
Our school enjoys a favourable pupil-to-teacher ratio in a nurturing environment, allowing pupils opportunity for personal attention to develop individuals abilities. Junior Prep has a vibrant learning environment with a strong sense of belonging. We have a broad, varied and exciting curriculum that offers many opportunities for children to explore their talents and develop their skills in numerous areas.
Our child friendly, state-of-the-art, Media Centre, Library and Computer Lab help our pupils to see beyond the borders of their protected secure world and into the wider world and beyond.
Taking them into that world, we introduce them to two secondary languages: isiXhosa and Afrikaans.
Learning activities are productive, context-based and fun, enriched with IT lessons, amazing music programmes, visual arts and exciting Junior Prep drama productions.
