Why Southampton Private Academy
SPA was conceived as an educational institution with an edge. Our policies are the real champion of our beliefs. Through our small classes and intensive high quality lesson delivery, we strive to expose our students to a stimulating learning experience.

We believe that a teacher should play the role of a facilitator, not just a disseminator of textbook knowledge. Our teachers are highly qualified with a minimum qualification of Diploma in Education for Foundation Phase and Bachelor's in Education for Intermediate Phase and above.

Not only are we setting the precedence for high academic performance in the area, we beat all other institutions in being the lowest fee private school.

Through our interactive and engaging classrooms, we ensure that children are active.



Here's what sets us apart as active participants rather than passive listeners.
Our integrated learning approach is an activity based learning process where experimentation, self-discovery, high level of engagement and hands-on experience are given priority.


Personal, academic, social and emotional development is given importance over basic cognitive development, ensuring that reasoning is not neglected.


All learners attend compulsory computer literacy classes which teach them basic end user computer skills such as typing, MS Word, Excel, Power point and Internet surfing from grade 1-12. Project based IT classes with certificates awarded at the end of each semester (end of the project) for learners from grade 1-12 where they learn about in-depth computer skills like coding, developing web pages, apps and databases are however optional.


Academic enrichment programs like Spelling Bee, Quiz, Art and Craft, Role Plays and Debate are impressed upon the learners to boost their IQ and self-esteem. This interdisciplinary approach creates eager and active learning skills in students and ensures their overall development.



Broad and Inspiring Curriculum

We pride ourselves in delivering the very best lessons to students every single day. Because of this, our individual student achievement continues to be on an upward trend.


We follow the South African Department of Basic Education (DBE) curriculum CAPS and our school is divided into ECD, Primary and High School.

We believe that for young minds to achieve their fullest potential, they need an atmosphere that combines academic and creative activities beyond the curriculum. We ensure this through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Our well planned timetable allows for ample time to be devoted to after-school programs. We encourage every child to participate in sports (soccer, netball, athletics, and chess, swimming) and performance arts like music, dance and theatrical drama to build confidence and develop their aptitude to the maximum.
