St John's College

The Pre-Preparatory offers a creative, stimulating learning environment with a strong sense of purpose, which encourages the development of the individual child. Boys enter Grade 0 at the beginning of the year in which they turn six.

We aim to equip each boy with the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills necessary for a happy and confident start to his school career. Each day follows a familiar pattern of work and play where boys feel secure and where their individual strengths and skills are encouraged to blossom.

The curriculum is wide and varied. From Grade 0 to Grade Two we have specialist teachers for lessons in Music, Physical Education, Drama, isiZulu, Afrikaans and Technology. In Grade One and Grade Two the curriculum becomes more structured and the learning environment more formal. After three years the boys leave the Pre-Preparatory to join the Preparatory School.
