We are a Primary School that prepares our children, by providing a safe place, to be secure in their uniqueness, so that they can impact the world they live in.

Talents are God-given and the way we think and live establishes the platform for success. The reality of life is nestled in our daily existence and our dreams and ambitions form our true self. At Knights Preparatory we link our faith with our dreams and realities. Dedicated, Christian teachers, committed support staff, involved parents, and visionary leadership form the median for success, the building blocks for future well being and internal self-realisation. This creates a positive school environment with high expectations for life.

We live in a rapidly changing world and it is our desire to nurture skills and values that will enable our learners to navigate through and succeed in life. In order to support our vision of children who can impact the world around them because they are secure in their uniqueness, Knights has adopted a cognitive education approach.

Jean Piaget said, "The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create people who are capable of doing new things."

This encapsulates our thinking at Knights Prep School, our classrooms are learner centred as we seek to encourage our children to invent and discover - to feed each child's natural curiosity and provide ample opportunities to explore the world. We seek to do this in a safe, loving environment where each learner is secure in the knowledge that they are uniquely created by God.

Each learner is given the opportunity to nurture and develop their individual gifts and talents. While following the National Curriculum, collaboration, communication, critical thinking and reflection are encouraged through projects and discussions. Our learners are shown how to be "explicit thinkers" who will make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.

Underpinning the curriculum is Carol Dweck's concept of a Growth Mindset which says that intelligence is not fixed but that people can become smarter because the brain is malleable. When students believe this, the research has shown that they are prepared to work harder as they understand that effort makes them stronger and their level of achievement improves.

Knights is affiliated to Thinking Schools South Africa and we are currently working towards accreditation as a Thinking School with the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom
