Founded in 1902, St Andrew's School for Girls occupies beautiful, park-like grounds in Bedfordview. Conveniently situated, for boarders the school is situated 15 minutes from OR Tambo international airport. Transport is available for girls living in the northern and southern suburbs of Johannesburg and in the Benoni area. S

t Andrew's School for Girls is a school that blends tradition and innovation to ensure an education that skills girls for life. We believe in helping each girl realise her potential through the creation of opportunity. This comes from cutting-edge facilities and quality teachers.

With boys and girls differing fundamentally in their brain development and function, international surveys are increasingly highlighting the benefits of gender-based education. So when we are asked the value of educating our boys and girls separately, we can offer a host of reasons.

Girls tend to be more contemplative, collaborative, intuitive and verbal than boys. As a result, they learn differently. At St Andrew’s we are able to adapt our teaching methods so that they are ideally suited to the way girls receive and absorb information. In this way, we bring out the best in our girls, so that they achieve in all subject areas and activities. St Andrew’s girls thrive on the individual attention they receive, gaining confidence and a positive belief in their own capabilities.

Free of gender pressures, girls are able to express themselves, be more daring and take academic, physical and emotional risks. Our girls mature in a safe, comfortable environment both in and out of the classroom, they develop a strong sense of self-worth. This means better academic results, more genuine subject choices and more opportunities for leadership – all of which superbly equip our girls for university and future employment.
