SOMERSET WEST PRIVATE SCHOOL COMES OUT TOPS NATIONALLY

SCOOPS NATIONAL AND WESTERN CAPE AWARDS FOR TOP PERFORMANCES

Well-known and much loved as a Mathematics and Sciences education specialist in the Western Cape, Somerset West Private School is proud to verify its status as a leading school not only locally but nationally too, scooping awards for its excellent matric performance from the Western Cape Education Department as well as from the Centurion-based independent national education quality assurance and data analysis group SOS (Skoleondersteuningsentrum). Notably, several schools in the Helderberg turned in excellent matric results in 2019.

With strong competition nationally, SOS awarded Somerset West Private School the Number One position, in the category Small Schools with the Most Distinctions Nationwide.  With 19 candidates, 38 distinctions and an average of 2 distinctions per candidate, Somerset West Private School was the best school in South Africa in this category.

Principal Morné Coetzer comments that he is exceptionally proud of all the school’s learners and staff, and being accoladed as a top private school nationally is a much-deserved honour, for all the hard work and care that everyone at the school puts into education.

Provincially, Somerset West Private School was in the top three schools of the province with an NSC enrolment of less than 30 candidates and received the accolade of Western Cape Education Department Award for Excellence in Academic Performance. In this category Somerset West Private School came in at third place.

A world of learners where children gain a passport to the world

WELCOME TO

SOMERSET WEST PRIVATE SCHOOL

Somerset West Private School originated from the successful provision of extra mathematical tuition offered by the current principal. The demand of these classes and the success thereof, led to the opening of SWPS in 1998 that provided learners with confidence in succeeding in Mathematics.

SWPS is currently situated in the heart of Somerset West and attracts learners from the Helderberg basin and beyond. We currently offer classes from Grade 7 to Post Matric level. The Post Matric group consists of learners who are wishing to improve their Grade 12 results, most of whom have been referred to SWPS by Stellenbosch University and the University of Cape Town upon failure to meet the minimum Mathematics and Science requirements on application for certain degrees. The Post Matric course continues for one year.
