Academics

Developing personal excellence and the development of all boys to their fullest potential  have always been a priorities at Cordwalles. Boys are extended and allowed to exert their individualism throughout their school careers from Pre-primary to Grade 7.

Guided by experienced, professional and passionate teachers and support staff, our boys are encouraged to become confident, independent and creative problem solvers.

To achieve this our academic programme is relevant to the boys. Each child is encouraged to reach his maximum academic potential. The Pupil Support Programme is extensive and of great benefit to our Boys.

In addition to the traditional languages of English, Afrikaans and isiZulu our thrust in the Senior Primary Phase (Grade 4 to 7) is that of Integrated Studies, combining the Human and Social Sciences of Geography and History. We are thus able to concentrate on the skills required in these subjects rather than the pure content. The Natural Sciences of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, along with Mathematical Literacy remain the corner stone of our school. Specialist teachers are employed to develop pupils’ Entrepreneurial skills, Music and Speech and Drama. An extremely well structured and balanced academic programme is in place for the boys.

Our Media, Information Technology, Design Technology and Art centres, staffed by professional specialists in each field, are at the cutting edge of education.

A great deal of care is taken to ensure a healthy balance between Academic, Cultural and Sporting Activities.
