SPARK Midrand opened in January 2016 and is the fifth school in the SPARK Schools network. SPARK Midrand is located in the Midrand area, north of central Johannesburg. SPARK Midrand scholars benefit from the SPARK Schools academic programme, core values, and enrichment opportunities. SPARK Midrand offers Grades R, 1, 2, 3 and 4 in 2017.
Along with the five SPARK core values, SPARK Midrand focuses on curiosity, with scholars learning more about the community and world around them. SPARK Midrand scholars are also physically fit and highly creative, participating in enrichment activities, such as English tuition, Maths tuition, dance, cricket, soccer, yoga, Nutty Scientists, karate, engineering, chess and drama.
SPARK Schools grow by a grade each year until we offer the full Grades R – 7 primary school offering.

“No one is born fully-formed: it is through self-experience in the world that we become what we are, critical thinking allows us as teachers and students to actively transform knowledge rather than simply consume it”

“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be”
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
“Be responsible you should not be a passenger in your life, at the mercy of someone else who is determining the route… Sieze every opportunity, every little detail counts”
