SPARK Lynedoch opened in January 2016 and is the sixth school in the SPARK Schools network. SPARK Lynedoch is located in the Stellenbosch area, east of Cape Town. SPARK Lynedoch scholars benefit from the SPARK Schools academic programme, core values, and enrichment opportunities. SPARK Lynedoch offers Grades R, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in 2017. English is the medium language, with Xhosa being offered as a second language.
Along with the five SPARK core values, SPARK Lynedoch focuses on sustainability, with students learning about how to protect the environment around them for the future. SPARK Lynedoch scholars are also physically fit and highly creative, participating in enrichment activities, such as dance.
