Top Private School

In a safe and beautiful farm environment surrounded by rolling hills of apple orchards, vines and fynbos, Applewood Preparatory is a small caring country school.  We concentrate on innovative, dynamic, individualised, nurturing learning in an outdoor environment with a strong focus on integrity, grit, effort, compassion, respect, self-control, commitment, initiative and kindness.  Every child (with their family) is encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life; from sportcultural, music and academic to social responsibility and care of the environment.  We welcome you to Applewood Preparatory School to share in our vision for happy, knowledgeable, confident, well-rounded children that are well prepared for the twenty-first century.
