The Pretoria Preparatory School was established in 1977 by a group of parents, therapists and teachers. It aimed to meet the needs of children who, despite good intellectual potential, were underachieving in regular schools because of specific or generalised learning difficulties. The school began with one teacher in an old house in Hatfield but grew rapidly and by October that year, already needed larger premises and the move to Brooklyn took place. Now over forty years and many building projects later, we have a well appointed, thriving school.

The school is non-profit company and is managed by a Board of Directors. The staff comprises of class teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, a psychologist, support staff and the admin team. The children receive a great deal of individual attention.  We have a very dedicated, highly qualified and experienced staff. The therapists and teachers work closely together as a multidisciplinary team participating in regular case conferences. The aim is to remediate the children's challenge areas and if possible place the children back into mainstream schools. Much attention is paid to producing self confident, happy youngsters who take pride in their achievements.
