Message From The Principal
Welcome to Sandhurst Pre– & Preparatory College. On behalf of the directors, staff and the school community I extend a warm welcome to those of you who are visiting our school website. The College was established to accommodate the growing need for high quality education in the Sandton metropolis.
Sandhurst Pre- & Preparatory College continues to pride itself by continuing and expanding on the high standards and traditions of our world-class, independent pre-school, previously known as Stepping Stones pre-school, and to provide high quality education to learners based on a progressive curriculum aligned to the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements. To this end the school has employed a high calibre team of teachers who are committed to continued study and research affording learners’ opportunity to learn within a progressive education environment that will realise our motto by being constant and fearless in an ever-changing world.
I envisage a bright future for our boys and girls as they learn within an environment where every child is nurtured on their journey to independence and where each child learns from one another as they come to experience inclusivity and recognition within our international community of learners. Our boys and girls are encouraged to be confident, purposeful, valuable and productive. We commit to providing each child rigorous academic opportunities, and intensive sporting and cultural programmes that will promote leadership, integrity that will promote meaningful and active citizenship.
