High School

While the primary school expressly focusses on the educational and developmental demands of gifted children, Radford High emphasises academic and intellectual excellence nurtured through individual attention and extremely small classes - with a focus on preparing our charges for the world beyond school.

Registered with the Independent Education Board (IEB) and provisionally accredited by Umalusi (the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training – with accreditation number 22 SCH01 00938 PA), Radford High is a haven for bright individuals who are serious about education, but keen to craft lifelong, happy memories along the way.
The IEB methodology fits in neat alignment with our approach to education - their tasks and rubrics being a formalised expression of principles which the teachers at Radford High support and use daily. Subjects currently offered for matric are:

"What it means to be human is to bring up your children in safety, educate them, keep them healthy, teach them how to care for themselves and others, allow them to develop in their own way among adults who are sane and responsible, who know the value of the world and not its economic potential. It means art, it means time, it means all the invisibles never counted by the GDP and the census figures. It means knowing that life has an inside as well as an outside. And I think it means love." - Jeanette Winterson
