If you seek to enrol your child in a school that consistently produces excellent academic, sporting and cultural performances, a school that is proud of its well-resourced classrooms and other facilities, its good public image and an alumni register that includes up-and-coming entrepreneurs, then Beaulieu College is as good as it gets.

The College:
The College believes that traditional education is complemented by innovative teaching methods which enable the pupils to think independently, communicate effectively and have confidence in themselves.

The healthy, nurturing, attractive country ambience instils an awareness of and sensitivity towards both the community and the ecological environs.

Professional, dynamic, enthusiastic and committed staff nurtures each pupil as a whole person. High moral standards prevail through the encouragement of integrity, mutual respect, honesty, trust and self-discipline.

Pupils are recognised as individuals and taught to think creatively and critically, to analyse and explore situations, to arrive at informed opinions and to continually expand their own horizons. The development of self-confidence, understanding, tolerance and adaptation to change are fostered.
Pupils are challenged to fulfil their potential in academic, sporting, social, artistic and spiritual spheres within a culture of teamwork and mutual reliance.

General Education and Training (GET) Phase
Beaulieu College offers the following learning areas within the GET phase, which incorporates grades 8 and 9:

  • English Home language

  • Afrikaans First Additional language

  • IsiZulu First Additional language

  • Mathematics

  • Physical Sciences

  • Life Sciences

  • History

  • Geography

  • Arts and Culture (Music, Visual Arts; Drama)

  • Technology and Design (AutoCad)

  • Life Orientation (LO)

  • Economic Management and Sciences (EMS)

  • Choice subject (Includes either: Accelerated Maths; Music; Visual Arts; Dramatic Arts; Equine Studies; or Enrichment Afrikaans or Maths)

All our learning material is aligned to the Curriculum Assessment Policies (CAPs), as outlined by the Department of Education. This serves as a framework, however, staff supplement and add to the content matter in all subjects to ensure that material is current and engaging. We split certain Learning Areas into subjects (eg. Natural Sciences into Physical and Life Sciences) due to our philosophy that specialist teachers will give more insight into their subject, which is then pursued in the FET (grade 10-12) phase. In many subjects, senior teachers will teach across grades.

Once a pupil has met the rigorous internal promotion requirements, they are promoted to the Further Education and Training phase (FET), where they are expected to choose their electives.

The Further Education and Training (FET) Phase

In Grades 10, 11 & 12 Compulsory subjects include:

  • English

  • Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy

  • Afrikaans First additional language OR IsiZulu First additional language

  • Life Orientation

(Those exempt from Afrikaans First additional language, enrol to do Computer Applications Technology which is based on a distance learning model administrated by Ssir. This service attracts an additional fee apart from the school fees).

Three electives (subjects) must be chosen from the list of subjects indicated below:

  • Physical Sciences

  • Life Sciences

  • History

  • Geography

  • Information Technology (see Information Technology tab)

Advanced Programme Mathematics (grades 10-12); Advanced Programme English (grades 11-12); and Music may be taken as an optional eighth subject course. This is at additional cost to parents, and is scheduled in the evening on weekdays. Music classes are scheduled by the teacher.

Sport
At Beaulieu College our approach to sport is in line with the College’s belief that education is part of holistic development of each individual. The College knows that every pupil has the ability to achieve something significant and the ability to succeed in some aspect of sporting endeavour, be it from school or area representation to the achievement of a personal goal.

One of the main goals of the sports programme is to identify and develop skill in every pupil, while ensuring that they understand the health and social benefits that accrue through participation in physical activities. Emphasis is also laid on the correlation between sport and other areas of the pupil’s life where team spirit, cooperation, effective communication and positive mental mind-sets are important. We encourage competition and organise regular sporting fixtures against other schools.

Beaulieu College Equestrian riders achieved 1st place in the SANESA School League for the fourth consecutive year.
