About the College
Wellington Preparatory School extended to high school from January 2018 with the opening of a Grade 8 class. We will grow one grade per year from now on.
Wellington Prep and College prides itself on:
√ Small classes in a nurturing environment
√ Integrated use of technology in education
√ Affordable independent school fees
There is a once-off registration fee of R1500 payable on offer of a position in the College. Fees for 2019 have been set at R3050 per month and there is also an iPad levy fee of R250 per month.
This equates to R3300 per month, payable from January to November with fees due by the 7th of each month. There is also an annual textbook and workbook fee of R1200 due by 31 October 2018.
The number of learners per class will be restricted to 25 or less for Grade 8 and 9.
As with many Independent Schools in South Africa, we will follow the IEB (Independent Examination Board)
We will be embracing modern technology in our College by making use of iPads on a one on one basis. Each College pupil will have an iPad for their exclusive use during the school day. This will give our learners a massive advantage in their high school career and beyond. A monthly rental fee of R250 will be charged to parents for the iPads (as explained under ‘school fees’). iPads will stay at school and may not be taken home, we will also make use of textbooks and workbooks which will go home in the afternoons for completion of homework.
School hours will be Mondays 08h00 to 15h00, Tuesdays to Thursdays from 08h00 to 14h00 and Fridays from 08h00 to 13h00.
For summer sport we will be offering cricket, swimming and athletics.
For winter sport, hockey and soccer will be on offer.
Chess will be offered throughout the year.
For the first year, the Grade 8 learners will slot in with our Grade 7 learners for sport practices. We will do our utmost to arrange U14 sport matches where possible.
To start with, the High School learners will wear uniform for outings and sport
matches. In time a decision will be made as to whether or not uniform will be
compulsory day wear. The uniform is in the design phase and will be available to purchase from our clothing market by the end of this year.
