Bishop Bavin School. Big enough to make a difference; small enough to care. We are a private, independent, Anglican co-ed day and boarding school, catering for children from Creche to Matric.

* 2 Basketball courts;
* A cross-country course winding through the school grounds;
* A 25m heated pool varying in depth;

Our boarding houses provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children. We have 4 dedicated houses for our junior and senior boys and girls. Each house is further divided into clusters so that children of similar ages are grouped together. Our in-house staff are willing and able to support your children through any challenges and with the support of our out-house duty staff we endeavour to ensure that your children truly have a home away from home with caring and loving parental figures.

Why do we choose to be co-educational?

* In an ever-changing world, children need to be exposed to the everyday living and working environment. It is not often that boys will work with only boys and girls with only girls;
* Society also demands that gender stereotypical roles are now often reversed – girls will be in charge of boys;
* Co-ed schools offer a variety of diverse curriculum activities which tend to eliminate traditional stereotyping of boys and girls into traditional categories;
* Boys and girls in a co-ed environment tend to view each other as equals and they develop a mutual respect for one another while learning to interact on a meaningful level;
* A more extensive range of after school activities can be offered as they can either participate together or separately;
* The girls and boys in one environment tend to create an equilibrium and there tends to be less adversity than in single-sex schools.
