High School Integration

All of our programmes are built around family homestays, which is where the student stays with their tutor or a host family during their stay. This gives the student a comfortable, friendly, home away from home. The school is local and easily reached. It’s in a good safe residential area close to shops and the beach. You will be expected to live as part of the family and also join in all of the school activities. Your english MUST be at least Intermediate and stays can be from 1 month to 1 academic year.


Our schools are based in 3 mains areas;  Simons Town ( est over 200 years ago!) and Fish Hoek.  Then further along the coast towards Somerset West and Stellenbosch and finally north of Cape Town in Brackenfell.  All schools are well established; modern with good facilities and have a good ethnic mix

Most South African schools enjoy sports and they can be very competitive so if you enjoy Rugby or Cricket then you will feel right at home here.  For those who are more academic than sporty, you will also enjoy the cultural side as they have vibrant Drama Groups as well as IT Departments and always a School Newspaper.  Whats not to get involved in…..

You will be expected to wear the school uniform.  That’s “ non negotiable!”  The wearing of uniform is strictly enforced right down to the wearing of the correct shoes ! We will get you a School Buddy when you arrive to show you around and help introduce you to the schedule.   Be sure your host family will also play an active part

Lots of social events to attend….

Additionally, we have a resident Local Co-Ordinator who will meet you on arrival and at other times during your stay. She lives very near to the school and is always on hand should you have any worries that your host family can’t help you with. She will be in contact with you; your own family; your host family and the school at all times.

New Friends at Lunch time

You meet your new school mates at lunch time and make lot’s of new friends

Duration of your school integration

You can attend from 1 month to 1 academic year and the only requirement is an acceptable level/understanding of English as you will be immersed in the school curriculum immediately. You will also be expected to purchase a school uniform.

During school life you can expect to attend all lessons for your academic year,  participate fully in sporting activities and be involved in any After School Events that occur.
