At St Andrew’s Prep, we combine the pursuit of excellence with a focus on preparing boys for a modern high school experience.
Prep offers a wide range of options to boys with many different interests and talents, and allows for individual attention and assistance. Advanced Maths and English programmes run by St Andrew’s College staff supplement the curriculum as does our excellent learning support system.
Senior Prep classes have a favourable pupil-to-teacher ratio, affording our boys highly-skilled, personal attention focused on nurturing individual abilities.
Our rigorous curriculum continually challenges boys in the 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. Prep does not neglect the basics and our boys receive an excellent education in the core subjects of literature, Mathematics, Science, social studies and languages. Top-notch facilities further enhance the Prep experience.
St Andrew’s Prep offers isiXhosa and Afrikaans to children both as first and second language levels. Boys entering Grade 7 from abroad may choose French as an option to Afrikaans.
Prep is also part of CS-First – an on-line Coding curriculum that has 4,600 schools registered worldwide. Coding – the language of the future – introduces Computer Science to boys who then learn to programme computers themselves.
Design & Technology
In this stimulating environment, Preppies respond with resourcefulness, enthusiasm and ingenuity. Projects begin with mind-boggling balance tricks using only paper and sticky tape to hold up heavy objects, and extend to projects as complicated as the piecing together of vehicle engines and designing and programming drones.
