Educating for life – Ad vitam educatio



Gracehill College Headmaster

Primary School - George, Western Cape


Our goal, at Gracehill College, is to equip children with eternal values and truth in order to place in them a deep desire to do what is right, fair and kind.

We would like our children to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ.” – 2 Peter 3:18

Our School prides itself in small classes, with only 18 to 20 children per class. The staff focusses on the individual needs of each pupil, to provide a loving and nurturing environment that focusses on the child as a whole.

Children are born with all the curiosity they will ever need.
It will last a lifetime if they are fed upon a daily diet of ideas
– Charlotte Mason

About Us

Our dream

  • A school where the children from Twittering Trees Preschool can move into, to further that which has been imparted into them from a young age
  • A school that is built on the abounding grace of Jesus Christ
  • A school that will foster honour and respect to all
  • Children living by the motto: Living fully, Loving widely, Learning creatively
  • A school with a family atmosphere, where children look out for one other and not only their own interests…


Cultural Activities

Music Education

At Gracehill, we would like our learners to experience the gift of music and the benefits of this universal language.

School music programmes are especially relevant to the development of each and every child. These programmes promote self-expression, responsibility and creativity. They develop self-discipline and thinking skills such as problem solving…



Our curriculum follows the framework of the Charlotte Mason educational philosophy, which is inherently rich and broad, likened by her to an ‘abundant feast for the mind’.  We place a strong emphasis on the foundations of literacy and numeracy, so place these first, but our curriculum also includes subject areas such as:

  •  English literacy which includes:
    • phonics and reading….



The following steps are required in order for a fast and efficient application process. Please ensure that the following accompanies each Application Form when returning it to the school:

  • Application Fee : R450 (non-refundable)
  • A certified copy of the student’s birth certificate
  • Copies of the student’s two latest school reports
  • School reference…
Charlotte Mason believed that “the formation of habits is education, and education is the formation of habits.” We, at Gracehill College, place great value on forming good habits as a solid foundation of life and education.
