A Brief History of Sagewood
Sagewood started with 16 children in 1985 in a flat in Cyrildene, moved to Bedfordview in 1986 where it had 70 pupils and was registered with the T.E.D. By 1987 it was running in Bertrams with 170 children, and in late 1987 moved to the old Johannesburg Children’s Home in Observatory with 200 children, growing to about 300 by 1992.
In 1992, thanks to a donation of R11 million from the Anglo American and De Beers Chairman’s Fund, the school moved to its current 70-acre site in Midrand, where it’s custom-designed facilities now stand.
In these excellent facilities the school has continued to develop its high standards and innovative teaching methods. Its high achievement has been proven by its repeated 100% matriculation pass rate, its successful graduates, its showing in external competitions of all sorts, and its happy, settled school atmosphere.
Our spacious facilities, in an open setting, have been designed for ease of learning. The Pre-School children meet in their own special secure buildings, the preparatory school and college have bright, well equipped classrooms with easy access to the technology centre, computer centre, and sports and recreation facilities.
The separate administration block houses our excellent library, an internet media centre, fully equipped computer centre, spacious auditorium and administrative offices.
