What do we offer?
At Waterstone College, we balance academic excellence with sports- and cultural well-being, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. From nursery school to high school, our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence as well as 21st-century skills to prepare them for the workplace of the future.
Our dedicated teachers give learners personal attention in the classroom, which helps to ensure that they achieve to the best of their abilities. As a Curro Select School, we can offer more specialised options to our learners, such as music, chess, art and environmental appreciation in our programmes from a young age. Although teaching takes place in English, learners may choose isiZulu as an additional language option.
Our modern classrooms are fitted with state-of-the-art equipment, while our international-standard facilities enable us to continue our strong performance in sport by offering a wide variety of activities. Furthermore, our enrichment programme provides learners with life skills and exposure to interesting hobbies during the school day. These activities range from cooking and science experiments to cardmaking and caring for the elderly.

These activities are generally included in the school fees, unless otherwise stated.
