Why Choose The Ridge?

Established in 1919, The Ridge School is one of Johannesburg's oldest and finest English-medium boys' preparatory schools. It is situated on 16 acres of the historic Westcliff Ridge, off Jan Smuts Avenue and Valley Road. With a strong sense of history, but firmly rooted in its modern contemporary environment, The Ridge School continues into its 10th decade to provide the boys with a holistic approach to education and the lessons of life.

We offer an exceptional, balanced education which instils respect for self and enthusiastically embraces diversity. Our aim is the development of a confident individual with a generous spirit and responsible character. Our progressive ethos, based on Christian values, is dedicated to the flourishing of learning and community development.

 

 

A Focus on Transformation

The School developed a "Ridge Charter" to capture its value statements. As part of this, it is currently focussed on transformation in its pupil and staff body, and its model has been rolled out to other schools.

Outreach and social responsibility are important elements of the boys' education and close association with Salvazione Christian School in Brixton gives them an opportunity to share experiences with children from a seriously under-privileged environment.

With a strong sense of history, but firmly rooted in its modern contemporary environment, The Ridge School continues to provide the boys with a holistic approach to education and the lessons of life. We thank everyone - staff, parents, the Board, Old Boys, successive Parents' Associations and especially the boys who make this school the happy and successful place it is today.
