The class size of 23 – 25 boys allows the quality staff to interact with the boys on a personal level.   Lessons are based on the CAPS system, as prescribed by the GDE, and are supplemented according to the needs and interests of the learners.   Assessment is cumulative-based and two sets of exams are written: in July and December.   The Year 6 and 7 learners also write external assessments to ensure they are working in accordance with the standards set in other Gauteng-based independent schools.   Academic support in English, Afrikaans and Mathematics, as well as a Homework Supervision class are offered in the afternoons.
