Which grades will the school cater for?

We will open an Early Years Centre (Grade 000 to Grade 00), Preparatory School (Grades R to 7) and College (Grades 8 and 9 in 2018).


When will the school open?

Our first day of school will be 17 January 2018.


What curriculum will be offered?

The school will be an independent school and will apply for membership of ISASA. The Preparatory School will follow the CAPS assessment standards, and the College will write the IEB Senior Certificate Examination.


How big will the school be?

The first phase of development will cater for up to approx. 550 pupils across the grades. Ultimately, though, further planned phases will take the school to a total capacity of approximately 1 200 pupils, from Grade R to Grade 12.


How many pupils will be in a class?

The following class sizes are specified -

  • Grade 000 and 00
    20 in a class
  • Preparatory Grades (Grades R to 7)
    25 in a class

What is the school's ethos/religious denomination?

The school will be non-denominational and culturally diverse and inclusive, but will follow the Christian faith and values.


Who will the principal be?

Steyn City School is proud to announce the appointment of Brian Mitchell as Headmaster.

Mitchell is one of South Africa's foremost educators, having spent 14 years teaching at Johannesburg schools, including stints as Deputy Head at St Martin's Prep and Principal at Redhill Prep. He later moved to Durban to take a post as Headmaster of Clifton School.

The experience gleaned here will be useful as he guides Steyn City School forward: "I am no stranger to working in new and developing schools. Clifton College was founded in 2002 and is now recognised as one of South Africa's leading independent schools, so I understand the exciting journey that awaits Steyn City School," Mitchell asserts.


What will the fees be?

Please see our [Schedule of Fees].


How many terms will there be?

We follow a three term calendar, substantially aligned with the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa (ISASA) published three term calendar.


What are the fundraising expectations for parents?

The school project is fully funded and capitalised. There is no requirement to raise funds from the parent body for building or expansion of the school, and while there may be some general fund raising for social causes and our community partnership programme as part of the school's philosophy and approach to education, any contributions will be completely voluntary. It will not be school policy to raise funds for future capital expenditure or school running expenses.


What sports facilities and cultural programmes will be available?

The school will have substantial sports fields and facilities from inception, and will be engaging with specialised teams of experts to develop top rate sporting programmes, as well as world-class cultural programmes.

This applies to all foreign students, including Grade R pupils, pupils whose parents reside outside the country, and pupils whose parents reside within South Africa and are in the process of applying for permanent residence.

Purposeful Telling: Through Memory to Action
8 March 2019

In 1999, Chapman University, in Los Angeles, in collaboration with the “1939” Club, an organization of Holocaust survivors and descendants, launched a writing competition. This competition, now in its 20th year, has grown into the largest Holocaust writing, art, and film competition, with around 250 schools participating. This year the theme of the competition was, ‘Purposeful Telling: Through Memory to Action’. “Listening to memory offers us the possibility to learn, find purpose, and act. Telling has purpose for the survivors and for us. It cannot change the past – but it holds the promise of changing the future.” We have been notified by Chapman University that Nehã Ganpath’s poem, ‘What the Hell’, has been selected as a finalist in the competition. We are enormously proud of Nehã. The awards ceremony will take place on 8 March at Chapman University. The award ceremony will be live-streamed at 11h00 (PST), 21h00 (SAST), you can join the webcast at:
