What people are saying
Our experience at SPARK has been really impressive, this includes:
Kami MoodleySPARK Kempton Park Parent
- Drop off and collection procedure
- Aftercare facility
- Homework outline
- Quality of teachers
Our son started at SPARK Schools quite late in the second term. Having missed so much time away from school and never having proper exposure to Grade R where he learnt to properly count and write, I must say the Grade 1 teachers at SPARK Les Marais are miracle workers. There has been a remarkable improvement in his discipline, social skills, behaviour and most importantly his academic work. I always believe in measuring my children's experience based on their reaction to things and I must say my son loves it at SPARK and is having a wonderful experience.. Happy Child, Happy Parents.. #Kudos to Principal Moyo-Zitha and her Team.Ntsiki JantjiesSPARK Les Marais Parent
My daughter joined SPARK Schools in Grade R in 2017. I absolutely adore the team at SPARK Randpark Ridge. They are compassionate, dedicated and as difficult as it is to believe, they know every scholar by name at the school. For the amount of money we pay for Private Education, we really are blessed with Teachers who are young, energetic and genuinely love their work. They have allowed my daughter to be great as she continues achieving outstanding results in her school work. I would recommend SPARK schools to anyone and everyone with my eyes closed!Palesa MafateSPARK Randpark Ridge Parent
My child is a SPARK scholar, and he is sure getting a world class education. Whilst others are dropping Maths standards SPARK are raising them. In Grade 6 they are doing the equivalent of Grade 8 and 9 Maths done at mainstream schools. It’s the best decision I made for my child’s future. Children are encouraged to do independent learning, and a university style of teaching is already introduced at a young age. I am doing my Masters Degree at University and I feel like my son is doing his 1st year too. Thank you SPARK Schools for the visionary leadership for our children. I could write until tomorrow about this school. We are at SPARK Lynedoch (Stellenbosch), and my daughter is joining next year as a Grade R scholar…I just can’t wait. Thank you!Rotanda Liyema SwartbooiSPARK Lynedoch Parent

SPARK Schools Curriculum
SPARK Schools is aligned to South African national academic standards (CAPS), and we further seek to extend student learning to meet international grade level standards. In every subject, our curriculum encompasses the requirements of the CAPS curriculum and deepens student knowledge to ensure that SPARK scholars are globally competitive. Our education model is blended and personalised: we integrate technology into instruction and differentiate according to the needs of every student.
In maths, students are taught according to Scholastic’s PRIME curriculum, which is based upon the rigorous maths standards of Singapore, the Republic of Korea, and Hong Kong. The curriculum builds student capacity to problem solve, and the assessments in the PRIME curriculum require students to employ critical thinking to demonstrate success.
In literacy, students progress through reading and writing according to criterion scales based on Britain’s literacy standards. As required by the South African national curriculum, all students study life skills, natural science, and social science. At SPARK Schools, we integrate these subjects into literacy so that the themes of each life skill, natural science, and social science unit are explored through reading and writing.
isiZulu & isiXhosa
In line with our Language Policy, all SPARK Schools offer as a first additional language, mandatory from Grade R, the most populous previously marginalized African language of the province. For example, the first additional language offered in Gauteng is isiZulu, and the first additional language offered in the Western Cape is isiXhosa. We do not teach Afrikaans at any of our schools in the network.
As we prepare our students for university and future careers, we understand the importance of health and wellness in their development. All SPARK scholars have physical education daily, Tuesday – Friday, where scholars learn in accordance to physical education requirements in CAPS. During PE, our students focus on strength and coordination, practice individual and team sports, and learn the importance of developing the body, as well as the mind.
