Leader in Supported Mainstream High School Education

Grantley College is situated in the picturesque suburb of Parktown, Johannesburg, and provides a supported academic mainstream education to students exhibiting learning difficulties in one or more learning areas. We aim to provide a sound holistic education in a caring community of educators, students and parents. Students are encouraged to maximise individual potential in preparation for a successful future leading to a meaningful life.

Grantley College was born out of a need to provide for the educational requirements of children with learning difficulties of one kind or another. The College provides a less anxious classroom environment where students receive tuition from caring staff and a multidisciplinary educational support team. The College is one of the few schools in South Africa that specialises in providing a supported mainstream education from grade 8 through to grade 12. Although academic achievement is not the sole measure of success, it is nevertheless important for the successful integration of learners into the adult world. Grantley students write the National Senior Certificate exam through the Gauteng Education Department, and have regularly achieved a 100% pass rate. The College is renowned for its warm, welcoming atmosphere and offers students, parents and staff a friendly, creative and challenging environment in which to learn and work.

The average class size is 11 ensuring all our students receive the added benefit of individualised support and exposure to a specialised academic and remedial staff.

Apart from a dynamic educational environment with small classes, the College offers a multidisciplinary programme that includes sport and cultural extra-mural activities.
