Summerwood Primary School serves the community by developing well rounded children through excellence in education. We strive to be the first school of choice in Summerstrand by offering an  identifiable  holistic education in a family school near the seaside.

Summerwood Primary School is a safe parallel-medium school accommodating learners from the Foundation Phase to the Senior Phase (Grade 1 to Grade 7). It is a day school without boarding options. Three pre-primary schools are in proximity to Summerwood Primary School. Two of these schools offer an aftercare service.

Our school is situated in the upmarket Summerstrand suburb of Gceberha. It is nestled among stunning houses and guest houses. It is across the road from the picturesque Boardwalk Hotel. Hobie Beach with its Shark Rock Pier is just a few hundred metres down the road. The school is bordered by one of the campuses of the Nelson Mandela University. Pearson High School, one of the top high schools in the country, is just two blocks away. Just imagine the possibilities you can unlock by enrolling your child at Summerwood Primary School.

Summerwood Primary School Houses

Summerwood Primary School decided to change the names of its houses in 2020. The purpose was to have houses that our learners can identify with easily. Therefore, the house names Clementz and Wegerhoff were changed to the Dolphins, Orcas and Stingrays.

As a parent you would like to afford your child the best possible beginning in his or her formal academic life. The foundation phase is a critical period of three years in your child’s life. It provides a solid foundation for the future. The professional and nurturing foundation phase teachers at Summerwood Primary School provide a holistic and integrated education. Through the introduction to structured sport, curriculum-based academics, and the introduction to a challenging but enjoyable level of cultural activities, our learners are assisted to develop and grow.

The intermediate phase offers a natural transition from the foundation phase. The learning environment remains caring and nurturing. Individual strengths are nourished, while developing essential social skills. The classes are relatively small and a variety of academic, sport and cultural activities go beyond the curriculum to offer a holistic education. The philosophy of Thinking Schools South Africa is embraced. These combinations ensure a holistic education. This allows your child to trhive.

The senior phase offers a focused and encouraging holistic education. Experienced qualified subject teachers offer learners the opportunity to evolve in this critical stage at the beginning of their true teenage years.

This is imperative, as it is your child's first year in the Senior Phase.

Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are integrated with the curriculum. In addition to professional teachers, qualified specialized sport and cultural staff members help learners to develop towards their full potential.
