SPARKING SUCCESS IN EVERY STUDENT

At the ISCT, we prepare students for the future—of school, university, and work—helping them develop essential skills, curiosity, and a passion for learning.

The ISCT Difference

British education is valued and trusted across the globe. Although international in approach, our UK-based curriculum also makes allowance for local content.

RECOGNISED WORLDWIDE

Over 1,400 universities around the world recognise and accept Cambridge Assessment International Education qualifications.

GLOBAL 
COMMUNITY

Students can transfer easily between more than 10,000 Cambridge schools in over 160 countries across 9 regions.

HIGHER-ORDER THINKING

While we value in-depth subject knowledge, our programmes also focus on developing transferrable skills, such as critical thinking and problem-solving.

INDIVIDUAL LEARNING

We don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to education. Instead, we put your child first and pay attention to their individual differences.

A SAFE SPACE IN SUPPORT OF YOUR CHILD’S HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT

Our campuses

WOODLAND HEIGHTS

EDINBURGH CLOSE, WYNBERG

Welcome to Woodland Heights, the original ISCT campus. Home to Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) and High School (Years 7-12/13). Built in the 1920s, many of Woodland Heights’ beautiful features—including the terraced gardens—can still be seen around the building. Some say it reminds them of Hogwarts—minus the moving staircases of course! That said, there’s definitely magic in the air…

STRUBEN HOUSE

31 EDEN ROAD, CLAREMONT

Introducing our newest campus: Struben House. Held in trust by the Cape Town Child Welfare Society, Struben House opened its doors to Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2) in 2016. Some say it’s comparable in size and splendour to Downton Abbey. The children love the classrooms—designed just for them—and the beautiful garden with its majestic 500-year-old yellowwood tree at its centre.
