At St Andrew’s Prep, we combine the pursuit of excellence with a focus on preparing boys for a world that demands teamwork, a willingness to keep on learning throughout life and take the lead.
Senior Prep classes have a favourable pupil-to-teacher ratio, affording our boys highly-skilled, personal attention focused on nurturing individual abilities.
Our state-of-the-art multi media centre, physical education and community service activities help our pupils to see beyond the borders of their immediate environment into the wider world beyond.
St Andrew’s Prep offers isiXhosa and Afrikaans to children both as first and second language levels. Pupils entering Grade 7 from abroad may choose French as an option to Afrikaans. Grade 7 pupils are given a formal course in Entrepreneurship as well as training in leadership skills.
Learning activities are productive, context-based and fun, enriched with IT lessons, music, visual arts and drama.
Academically talented boys in Grade 7 are prepared for and write the St Andrew’s College scholarship examinations, winning on average two scholarships per year. External examinations such as Olympiads are written to ensure that the academic level remains of a high standard.
