Until recently, Summerhill
was in an early stage of development and as a result was only able to
offer limited sports to its learners. With us growing, we are able to
offer a greater variety of sports and create a deep sporting culture
that will leave a legacy and leave a mark on our community. This will
require many hours of hard work and commitment from all parties
In order to achieve this, the Sporting Department will focus their time and efforts on:
It is our belief that if we can cement these values in our sport we would have created a solid foundation to build on.
Summerhill College offers
an international education which is an asset for those families who are
faced with integrating their school-going children from one country to
another. In South Africa there is an increasing demand for highly
educated school leavers with the ability to think on their feet. An
internationally backed educational system will give students an “edge”
in tough job markets both here and abroad.
Summerhill College has always prided itself on being able to teach students using the best study technology available to us. One of the main aspects of our Study Technology involves teaching students at the right gradient or degree of difficulty, mastering one thing well before having to move to the next step.
At Summerhill College we encourage our students to take pride in themselves, their fellow students and most especially their school.
The College is a registered exam centre with Cambridge International Examinations. Cambridge qualifications are recognised in over 160 countries. We offer Checkpoint (Grade 8 equivalent), IGCSE (Grade 9 and Grade 10) and AS Level (Two year course. Grade 11 and Grade 12 equivalent). We offer a broad range of internationally recognised qualifications, both academic and vocational, designed to develop successful students worldwide.
Arts and Culture
The Art and Culture
Department at the College is growing every year. We have a dedicated and
enthusiastic group of artists, ably lead by Miss Mill. I am amazed at
the incredible talent of our pupils and the ability Miss Mill has to
inspire the best from them. The Drama Department is always a hive of
activity and students love demonstrating their dramatic ability on
stage. Mrs Muller has an abundance of energy and is always involved in
one-or-other school production. The College has a number of budding
young musicians who play instruments ranging from guitar, to piano to
clarinet. We hope to have a formalised music department at the College
in the near future. This is in the plans for our new buildings as we
continue to expand. There is extra-cost dancing at the school where
students take time out from their hectic academic schedule to express
themselves on the dance floor. This includes all styles of dancing from
salsa to hip-hop.
