Redhill High School

Redhill High School has delivered some of the finest results in South Africa, and some the finest young people over the years.

Academic Excellence

Redhill High School provides an enlightened, stimulating, academic environment in which new ideas can be explored. Our teachers are given the freedom to teach creatively beyond the limitations of the formal syllabus. Strategies for thinking and learning are part of the mainstream of teaching. Frequent staff workshops provide exposure to progressive methodology and ideas. Most of our teachers are involved in the Independent Examination Board's (I.E.B.) Curriculum Development groups, or are examiners.

In Grades 8 to 9 innovative curricula include Technology, Computer Skills, and Co-operative Learning. In Grades 11 and 12 pupils are prepared for the internationally recognised I.E.B Senior Certificate Examination which places the emphasis on application of skills rather than rote learning. Continuous assessment is integral to the I.E.B. approach.

A significant number of Redhill pupils study eight subjects rather than the stipulated seven. The splendid record of Redhill students at university testifies to the high standard of our education. For over 30 years, Redhill has had a 100% matric pass rate, and for many years, 100% of our university aspirants have been successful.


In the Classroom

Classes are relatively small, not in excess of 24 pupils per class, and much fewer in most subject classes. Our matriculants average 90 per year currently. The size of our school allows for an indepth reporting system, including comprehensive termly and interim reports, and regular teacher - parent meetings. Redhill's size also allows us to encourage strong relationships amongst teachers and pupils. We have implemented a tutor system, which sees each pupil choosing a member of staff as his/her tutor, and a "buddy" system, which links incoming Grade 8 pupils with matric students to ease them through their first year at Redhill.

International exposure, and knowledge of the greater South Africa and classmates comes via the tours that the school arranges on an ongoing basis.
