FOUNDATION PHASE

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.

Foundation Phase

INTERMEDIATE PHASE

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 thrive.

Senior Phase

SENIOR PHASE

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.
