St Thomas Private School - Where young minds grow

Academic

“There can be no keener revelation of a society, soul than the way in which it treats its children. This concern for and interest in the safety and security of our children as expressed by Nelson Mandela, is also enshrined in our school motto: ‘Where young minds grow!’ In a safe, secure, loving, nurturing and caring environment, our learners receive a holistic education which entails the development of the mind, body and spirit.

St Thomas Private School comprises of the following Campuses :

The pre-Grade R and Grade R campus is called the Stepping Stones to St Thomas Private School. This campus encompasses critical phase of a child’s schooling is situated at 29 Durban Street, King Williams town.

The primary school which is called the Lonsdale Campus or Junior Campus is situated at 32 Lonsdale Street, King Williams Town. At this campus the Grade 1 to Grade 5 classes are accommodated.

The High School is to be found at 10 Queens Road, King Williamstown. This is referred to as the Queens Road Campus, the Grade 6 to Grade 12 classes are offered from this Campus.

The academic, sporting and cultural sub-committees are well represented and supported and we are pleased to say are pushing and testing the boundaries with some interesting repercussions and reactions. But this is surely what “providing a holistic education” is all about. The management and staff are comfortable with exploring these boundaries, within the parameters of St Thomas Private School’s values and ethos.
