Whilst our main focus at Somerset West Private School is academics, we do encourage our learners to participate in sport for its many benefits. We have collaborated with a local public school who have an excellent sport record and exceptional facilities should learners wish to take part in team sport.
Somerset West Private School is also the ideal place for learners who excel in individual sports such as cycling, swimming, horse riding and wakeboarding. Personalised timetables and academic schedules can be arranged for these learners to ensure that their academic needs are met whilst they attend to the demands of training and travels.
Our daughter left a prominent girls-school in Stellenbosch during grade 9 in 2016, with a Mathematics result for her June exam of 55%. She enrolled in Somerset West Private School during the 3de term and ended her school year with a remarkable Mathematics result of 81%. It didn’t stop there and her marks kept on improving in 2017.
Apart from her Mathematics result, she also flourishing in her other subjects and it is all due to the high level education and educators at SWPS.
The support we have received from the school during her international travels to partake in sporting events have also been astronomical.
The more “relaxed” atmosphere and dress-code, has been conducive to her excellent results.
I will not hesitate to recommend Somerset-West Private School to any parent or learner.
