Hartford College - Private Independent Pre-School & Primary School in Johannesburg South

Hartford College Primary School is a small private independent school, located in the heart of the suburb of Mondeor, in the South of Johannesburg, surrounded by parkland and the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve.

The school’s tranquil, natural location is the inspiration for the school’s ethos, which aims to provide children with a gentle, nurturing environment that will stimulate their natural curiosity.

To ensure that children begin their education with the best possible advantage, Hartford College employ teachers that are a little older and have a wealth of teaching experience. Classes are kept small, so that the teachers can provide more hands-on personal attention to each child.

We follow a CAPS curriculum that is enriched, with extra emphasis placed on mathematics and the sciences.  Our standards are high, with 50% being considered a minimum pass rate in each subject.  We participate in national bench-marking Olympiads each year.  In 2018, our Grade 5 & 7 classes were ranked in to the Top 20 schools in South Africa, in Mathematics and Afrikaans.

Regular outings to the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve helps engender a love of nature as well as being an engaging way of teaching Natural Science.

The school is a member of The Independent Schools Association (ISASA), IEB (Independent Examination Board) and WESSA.

What a pleasure!”

 

HARTFORD PARENT

"Hartford College is truly an excellent choice for parents to place their child in an environment where children learn to grow and develop into little people where the basics of environmental issues are focused - so important for our youth today. The teachers and Principal are exceptional. As a parent you need peace of mind that your child is happy in their learning experience and Hartford has definitely done that beyond my expectations. I recommend Hartford on a daily basis and will continue to do so that others too might find a wonderful school such as Hartford for their children to begin their fundamental early stages in learning so that their future can be enlightened like my child's."

 

HARTFORD PARENT

"Hartford College really took time to nurture Kaylasha and the fact that she got an award last year just makes her want to work even harder. I’m grateful to Hartford College for helping Kaylasha uncover her potential and helping her believe that the sky’s the limit. I will always stand by my belief that teachers are the building blocks of our future and I want to thank you for employing some of the best teachers. May you and the school grow from strength to strength and continue uncovering the precious diamonds in the rough."
