Northriding College is an independent school situated in Northriding, Randburg, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 1 to Grade 10, with higher grades phasing in annually. As a Curro Select school, our small class sizes, enhanced curriculum and dedicated teachers provide learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals. From 2021 our high school will offer a unique e-learning model (DigiEd) that prepares learners for the fourth industrial revolution through a project-based learning programme that emphasises Science, Mathematics, and Technology.
Our nursery school, Northriding Pre-primary, offers an integrated play-based programme to learners from 2 years to Grade R. View their webpage to see how we apply our internally-developed programme to support your child’s early learning and development goals.
What do we offer?
At Northriding College, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural well-being, thereby ensuring that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. Our formidable sports and cultural activities and enhanced curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence. Our classes are presented in English and we focus on 21st-century skills that empower learners to become trail blazers in their personal and professional lives.
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 superior facilities, specialised subjects such as Economic and Management Sciences, and a wellness centre where therapists support learners who require additional support.
Our modern classrooms are fitted with state-of-the-art tools, while learners from Grade 6 onwards use tablets in the classrooms for certain subjects. Furthermore, our transport service travels to and from nearby areas while our aftercare service accommodates those who need to stay until well after school.
With our DigiEd curriculum approach (available from 2021), our teaching method centres around the use of technology. Learners watch instructional videos rather than read purely from textbooks and receive multimedia-based material. This offering is perfect for the learner who wants a modern Mathematics- and Science-based education and dreams of tertiary studies. Our longer school hours (08:00 – 17:00) and no-homework policy accommodate the schedules of working parents by removing the pressure of managing heavy loads of homework.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-awareness, discipline and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer focused sports and cultural activities, supplemented by extramural activities offered by private tutors or coaches. These activities are generally included in the school fees, unless otherwise stated.
