Broadacres Academy is an ISASA (Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa) member. We have chosen to write a South African matriculation certificate (NSC) under the auspices of the IEB (Independent Examinations Board). This is also verified through Umalusi (The Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training.) All of this ensures that your child has an internationally recognised and accredited pathway of schooling to enable entry into tertiary study, either locally or internationally, or the world of work.

Constructivist teaching is based on the belief that learning occurs as children are actively involved in the learning process.

Constructivist teaching involves the design of learning experiences that allow children to construct and assign meaning to knowledge in an individual way.

Learners are thus the makers of their meaning and knowledge, resulting in deep personal and contextualised understanding.

Children are natural born learners, and we create an environment that stimulates their love of learning throughout their school career. Certain core curriculum standards need to be attained each year so that there is progression through the grades. Education at Broadacres Academy culminates in the National Senior Certificate (IEB) at Grade 12 level.

Our school is driven by the morals and values of a positive society. We instil discipline through continually driving home these morals and values, like courtesy, honesty, fairness and respect. Children are guided and encouraged to do the right thing.

A Code of Conduct, which is age-appropriate, guides and protects our students, creating a safe and fair learning environment.

In the Preschool, the classes are limited to 20 children per class depending on the age group of the class. There is an assistant in the Crèche, two and three-year-old classes.

In the Junior Preparatory School, the classes average 22 children per class.

In the Senior Preparatory, the classes average at 25 learners.

The High School class sizes average at 25 students.

We teach children in the way that children naturally learn, and provide learning support where required. This does not mean that we cater for children who may have developmental delays and other related barriers to learning and who still need the specialised environment that established remedial schools offer.

There is a bridging class option for Grade 1 – 4 with a maximum of 12 children per class. The purpose is to have an integrated learning environment for children who need specialist attention with the purpose of integrating into mainstream classes from Grade 5.

When Broadacres Academy launched “Our Little Village” as the aftercare and holiday care provision for our students, it was the result of clearly understanding the unique needs of our community.  The African proverb inspired our thinking: “It takes a Village to raise a child.” At “Our Little Village”, we’ve created a haven where children belong, a home away from home to provide the peace of mind parents need.

Our in-house service has its own experienced staff, delightful, safe settings and are packed with age-appropriate, fun-filled activities that focus on the social development of the children in our care. This service beautifully compliments the Broadacres ethos of kindness and care, and is an extension of the learning that occurs during the academic day.

We pride ourselves on our exceptional safety standards, wonderfully prepared meals during our clubs and a close and protective bond with the children.

Aftercare is available to the Preschool and Preparatory School children at an additional cost (as per the fee schedule). The Preschool aftercare runs until 14:00 or 17:30 each day and includes a cooked lunch, constant structured supervision and a light afternoon snack. Note that there is no aftercare on the days that we break up for half-term and end of term.
