Collegiate Junior School for Girls has five Pre-Primary classes housed in their own area of the school, on the Collegiate Campus. Our policy is to accommodate no more than 25 pupils in a class, allowing the five qualified Foundation Phase teachers and two teacher assistants (Foundation Phase learnership students) to create a happy, secure learning environment, offering individual attention to our girls.  Our language of tuition is English.


All Pre-Primary pupils wear a Collegiate ‘play uniform’ especially created for comfort and easy movement of the young child.  All items and school requirements are obtainable from the school shop situated in the school building.

DAILY PROGRAMME (click to see)

The daily programme allows the learner time to play out her energies, fantasies, fears and to strengthen her body.   Furthermore, they learn the important life skill of socializing and sharing with their peers at school by exposing them to a host of different activities.

PRIVATE EXTRA MURALS:  Grade 00 and Grade R

As the girls only begin to formally play sport from Grade 3, Collegiate has opened her campus to a variety of private coaches for sports such as:

  • Tennis
  • Peewees Hockey
  • Playball
  • Sandula Kids (Mark Marshall fosters a love for nature)
  • Monkeynastix
  • Stimuzone (coding and robotics)
  • Irish Dancing


A report will be handed out to all Grade 00 and Grade R learners at the end of each term.  Personal interviews will be held with every learner’s parents and their teachers after the first term of assessment.  Further interviews are encouraged, at convenient times, throughout the year.


Admission to Grade 1 is automatic.  The passing requirement of a Grade R learner into Grade 1 is governed by her meeting the minimal passing requirements as set out by the Department of Education.
