SPARK Ferndale, founded in January 2013, is the first school in the SPARK Schools network. Located in the leafy suburb of Ferndale, Randburg, SPARK Ferndale boasts an active, engaged student and parent body. We look forward to welcoming new SPARK scholars and their families to Grades R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in 2017.

Along with the five SPARK core values, SPARK Ferndale focuses on environmental stewardship, with students completing service activities that benefit the environment and local community. SPARK Ferndale scholars are also physically fit and highly creative, participating in enrichment activities, such as pottery, English tuition, Maths tuition, ballet and hip hop, cricket, soccer, Nutty Scientists, karate, music, chess and drama.
