Welcome to Simond Private School: The school with a warm country heart!

Simond Private School has been serving the community since 1852. We are a proud Christian school with a passion for people. Within Simond Private School you will find a caring and supportive society. Our school is set within the beautiful Paarl Valley and is conveniently situated alongside the R45 main road between Paarl and Franschhoek. Surrounded by sprawling vineyards and rolling mountainsides, our school`s long-standing appeal will charm all who visit us.

Having smaller classes contributes to the sense of family and a relaxed environment.
