“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”
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.
- A school where the children from Pre-Primary 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…

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’.

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

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.
Linger Coffee Shop serves a variety of refreshing beverages, cakes, and sweet treats as well as wraps and light lunches. Our fantastic coffee shop is also open to the public. A great meeting place for friends as well as small business meetings.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. We, at Gracehill College, believe that “every good gift of knowledge and insight come from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17.
We trust in our Heavenly Father to nurture and equip our children, through a thoroughly researched curriculum and feast of ideas. We strive for an education that is far deeper than mere exams and tests – an education that impacts lives and echoes into eternity
