Struben House

Introducing our newest campus: Struben House. Held in trust by the Cape Town Child Welfare Society, Struben House opened its doors to Early Years and Key Stage 1 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.

There are two classes in each year group, with class sizes ranging between 16-20 students.

EARLY YEARS

Nursery

Nursery is open to children who are between the ages of 3 years 6 months and 4 years 6 months (in January in the year of admission). Nursery is all about balance. Here, we focus on the foundational skills necessary for students to progress to Reception, as well as the importance of play and friendship. 

Reception

Reception is open to children between the ages of 4 years 6 months and 5 years 6 months. This is where we introduce more formal literacy and numeracy skills. At the end of Reception, students will be reading and writing! Reception is equivalent to Grade 0 in the South African educational system.

KEY STAGE 1

Years 1 & 2
