At Sandton Junior School, our primary aim is to encourage each pupil to be a self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, positive, well-rounded character with an independent mind. A balanced programme of rigorous academics, sport, and cultural activities enables pupils to discover and expand their own talents in a personal and diverse community so that the children embark on their adolescent and high school years confidently and knowledgeably. Courage, trust, humility, perseverance, community, and life long learning are the underpinning values of the school and provide the foundation for each pupil’s growth toward becoming a responsible adult.

Our Teaching Philosophy

Early Childhood Development
Our approach is committed to building on each individual’s strengths and includes physical, intellectual and social development.
