Behind every good student is a good school. And behind every good school, is a great community.
A word from our Principal
Age 2 – Grade 12. Eastern Cape, South Africa. We’re a family centered school and this ethos allows for the investment of personal attention in its valued pupils to further their growth and provide an all-round education of an excellent standard.
Ages 2 - Grade 3
Children learn the “fun”-damentals of reading, writing and numeracy as well as key life skills and developing their thinking skills.
Grade 4 - Grade 7
These are key developmental years in any child’s life and every effort is made to make school as interesting and as enriching as possible.
Grade 8 - Grade 12
Students grow physically while establishing a sense of individuality, self-worth and purpose. We guide and grow our future leaders.
From our blog
I am a Grade 4 teacher at Port Alfred School.
Being a teacher is one of the most fulfilling occupations you can find.
Phakamisa means “to uplift” and this project is one that tugs at the heartstrings. It started with a touching story of a teen, who despite numerous setbacks, still attended school, still studied hard and remained humble, courteous and polite – to the extend that even peers commented on it.
