Mission Statement

Junior College is a private school based in Ottery, Cape Town.

At Junior College we are proud to encourage the values of loyalty and respect for fellow human beings in a higher power and value based learning environment. We nurture the freedom of mind necessary for making good moral decisions. Learners thrive in an environment in which mutual trust, respect and the consideration for fellow pupils form the basis of their educational foundation.

The professional and dedicated team of educators strive to promote an environment where your child’s full potential can be realised. We value the unique qualities of each individual and seek to nurture their particular talents and empower them to confidently overcome their weaknesses. We aim to provide a child-centered holistic (intellectual, emotional and physical) learning environment in which the diversity of children’s experience will be honoured and incorporated. We aim to equip learners with the appropriate skills to think critically and work diligently both co-operatively and independently.

Our learners are exposed to a school environment where self-discipline and a positive self-image is encouraged. The integration of academic excellence and a life-skill based curriculum promotes the development of a well-balanced individual who will make a positive contribution to society. With these ideals and maximum parent involvement, Junior College will remain a pillar of strength in the community for many years to come.

Our Ethos

  • An awareness of social and environmental responsibility
  • An emphasis on fostering self-worth, independence and confidence
  • A discipline environment with good moral values
  • Education is a dynamic partnership between children, teachers, and parents, in which each compliments the work and effort of the other in an atmosphere of CO-OPERATION, MUTUAL RESPECT AND APPRECIATION.

Our History 

Junior College was established by its headmaster Mr Nasar Salie who taught at a public school up to 1993. It is an institution managed by administrators and staff who have an intense and loyal interest in the success, happiness and individual needs of every learner who passes through its doors.

We started off as a pre – preparatory school, admitting learners up to Grade 3. After that, year after year, Junior College grew until within a few years it started offering classes up till Grade 7.

Our Staff

All of our teachers have qualifications in the subjects they teach, and are qualified teachers. Experience levels range from two years (for the junior staff) to over thirty years (for the senior staff.)

The school operates under separate heads for the pre-primary, primary, intermediate and senior phase. We have found that this offers each unit a great amount of flexibility in planning their activities, tests, classroom strategies, etc. With separate staff members for each academic level, Junior College offers a comprehensive feedback and information sharing mechanism to ensure that learners are ready for each level of education as they progress from grade to grade.
Safety and Security
Our learners are as important to us as they are to you. We understand the need to keep a steady look-out for their well-being as well as safety and have in place a setup that ensures that any unforeseen event can be handled efficiently. We have strict access control via intercom, electronically controlled gates and a surveillance system consisting of thirty-two cameras.
