Why Pridwin Preparatory School

Pridwin offers a well-balanced and culturally enriched programme that ensures our boys receive the finest possible start to their education. We know that academic success in later years depends on a solid foundation in primary school and our curriculum facilitates an environment where boys develop a love of learning through creative and collaborative approaches.

The integration of outdoor, innovative, and age-appropriate classroom lessons provides a perfect platform for the growth of our boys’ intellectual and emotional development. Our leading academic programme promotes development of 21st Century skills, which includes a focus on inquiry-based learning through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics)

Pridwin Preparatory is a school that emphasises the individual. My son was given every opportunity to thrive, grow and discover his strengths and weaknesses in a caring environment

Grade 0 2021

At Pridwin my son was known by name by every staff member at school. Because of the small caring environment, he was able to discover who he is in a safe and nurturing space

Grade 7 2021

We were approached by the likes of Hilton, Michaelhouse, St Johns College, and St Andrews College to name a few. All wanted our son to choose their high school. It was clear to me then that Pridwin boys are highly sought after by these high schools and we were able to choose our preferred high school for our son.
