At PEPPS Polokwane, we take pride in offering a comprehensive academic experience from Early Childhood Development to Grade 12, guided by a commitment to excellence and the development of well-rounded individuals.

PEPPS Polokwane offers classes from Grade R to 12 with class sizes not exceeding 30 pupils. Education takes place in a Christian ethos environment.

Our language of instruction is English and we are committed to developing the creative and cognitive abilities of our pupils. Independent thinking skills are prioritised and each pupil is encouraged to develop holistically. Involvement in the extra-curricular programme is expected and each child is given opportunities to contribute to a number of social responsibility initiatives.

We maintain high academic standards and excellence pervasive in the work that is done. Project-based Learning (PBL) is one of the ways in which we prepare pupils for the 4th Industrial Revolution. This methodology has been shown to improve learning retention and interest. Computers are integrated into the learning at all levels of the school. We also offer lessons in philosophy and ethics as well as social and emotional skills.

Leadership is explicitly addressed through our curriculum since our motto is ‘Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders’. All pupils are guided towards being the best version of themselves. Pupils and teachers work positively together in order to enhance the educational experience. Discipline with dignity is a philosophy that speaks to constructive relationships within the school environment.

The campus has over a 100 indigenous trees and plants which provide a serene and calming learning environment for our pupils. We are an Eco-school and encourage our community to care for the environment through various initiatives, including recycling.

PEPPS ensures an educational journey that is unique for each child. The aim is to create conscious individuals who are able to interact and function within multicultural and diverse environments with ease.

Little children learn best through play. PEPPS’s progressive curriculum ensures that our preschool pupils learn while developing their gross and fine motor coordination. We also emphasise emotional regulation and spiritual growth. Pre-schoolers are naturally curious and this curiosity is harnessed as our pupils are encouraged to ask questions and think independently.

Each class has a maximum of 30 pupils guided by a teacher and an assistant. Outdoor-play, water-play and mud-play are encouraged over and above indoor age-appropriate activities. PEPPS prioritises building the self-esteem of our pupils and disciplining them with dignity.

All teaching takes place in English.

PEPPS Polokwane’s Foundation Phase pupils enjoy a rich and diverse learning experience. Holistic growth of each individual is prioritised and we endeavour to build each young person up to becoming the very best version of himself/herself. Leadership skills are explicitly taught as we live up to our motto of ‘Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders’. We explicitly teach our pupils thinking skills, ethical reasoning and social and emotional intelligence through our ‘philosophy and axiology’ lessons. Our team of teachers are all expected to discipline young children with dignity while building their self-esteem.

Our Grade 1-3 classes have a maximum of 30 pupils. The children are given a chance to enjoy a break after each lesson, where they are encouraged to play outdoors, enjoy a snack and visit the bathroom. These breaks ensure that they are receptive to learning when they are in class.

English is the language of instruction and we offer a choice between Sepedi and Afrikaans as an additional language. Pupils enjoy Art and Music lessons to nurture their creativity. As part of the curriculum, we also have Stimuzone computer lessons and MiniChess classes, which both enhance logical reasoning skills. Mathematics lessons are given to each class by Mathematics specialist teachers in order to ensure that solid foundations are laid in this critical subject.

There is a full sport and cultural programme offered during the school day which exposes our young pupils to hockey, netball, football, debating, choir, public speaking, crafts and athletics. Over and above this, formal lessons in tennis, swimming as well as general physical education are part of the weekly programme.

Children who are struggling in either Mathematics or Reading are expected to attend afternoon classes to support them in improving their skills.

International Benchmark Tests (IBTs), which are administered by the Independent Examination Board (IEB), are completed in the latter half of Grade 3. These are external tests which ensure that we remain competitive in the level of proficiency that our pupils attain.

In Grade 4-7, our pupils have subject specialists teaching them each subject as they move from class to class for their lessons. Between each lesson, the pupils enjoy a short break in order to recharge and be ready to engage in further learning as each new lesson unfolds.

English is the language of instruction and we offer a choice between Sepedi and Afrikaans as an additional language. Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Life Skills, Technology, Art and Music form part of a curriculum that is enhanced through Project-based Learning (PBL). Our Project-based Learning programme is called ‘Creating Tomorrow’.

PBL has been shown to encourage independent thinking and research skills and creativity opportunities for pupils. This methodology is widely regarded in educational circles as the best way of preparing children for the 4th Industrial Revolution. The Independent Examininations Board (IEB) has explicitly supported and favoured this method of learning in the future. Pupils are offered the opportunity to develop their computer skills in many of their ‘Creating Tomorrow’ lessons. We also offer Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) classes every week to all pupils.

International Benchmark Tests (IBTs), which are administered by the Independent Examination Board (IEB), are completed in the latter half of Grade 6. These are external tests which ensure that we remain competitive in the level of proficiency that our pupils attain.

Extra-curricular activities are offered after school and all pupils are expected to involve themselves in at least one extra-curricular activity per term. PEPPS strongly believes in the holistic development of each child and this includes physical and cultural activities.

Leadership skills are explicitly taught as we live up to our motto of ‘Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders’.

Our teachers are all expected to discipline the pupils with dignity while building their self-esteem.

Any pupil who is struggling academically will be expected to attend afternoon classes to assist them in improving their skills. We have especially high expectations in Mathematics, where the pass mark is 45%.

High school pupils are encouraged in independent work ethic and independent thought. All pupils are expected to bring their own laptop (any brand) to school daily as we integrate technological proficiency into the entire curriculum. Pupils choose from a wide variety (14-20) of projects every 20 days which they engage in during their ‘Creating Tomorrow’ lessons. ‘Creating Tomorrow’ is our Project-based Learning (PBL) curriculum. This methodology is widely regarded in educational circles as the best way of preparing children for the 4th Industrial Revolution. The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) has explicitly supported and favoured this method of learning in the future. It has been shown that pupils are more engaged in learning if they have had a choice in what they are learning and are interested in what they are learning.

In order to assist pupils in using their laptops effectively, we do offer coding lessons in these grades.

In Grade 9, each matric subject is offered as a short module course in order to expose the pupils to what they can expect in their last three years of school. These modules also lay the essential foundations required for each of these subjects.

English is the language of instruction and we offer a choice between Sepedi and Afrikaans as an additional language. “Beyond the Curriculum” (BTC) is a weekly lesson which explicitly addresses philosophy, ethical thinking, social and emotional intelligence and leadership. An hour is set aside each week for pupils to go to a spiritual activity. Formal reading lessons are also part of the Grade 8-9 curriculum.

International Benchmark Tests (IBTs), which are administered by the Independent Examinations Board (IEB), are completed in the latter half of Grade 9. These are external tests which ensure that we remain competitive in the level of proficiency that our pupils attain.

Extra-curricular activities are offered after school and all pupils are expected to involve themselves in at least one extra-curricular activity per term. PEPPS strongly believes in the holistic development of each child and this includes physical and cultural activities.

Any pupil who is struggling academically will be expected to attend afternoon classes to assist him/her in improving his/her skills. We have especially high expectations in Mathematics, where the pass mark is 45% in Grade 8 and 50% in Grade 9.

The school organises for every Grade 9 pupil to write psychometric tests which assist them in making an informed subject choice.

We pride ourselves on consistent excellent matric results in the IEB examination. We are committed to ensuring that as many pupils as possible achieve a bachelor degree (BD) pass. This empowers our pupils to go on to study at tertiary institutions of their choice. Appropriate subject choices enable pupils to achieve the highest results possible.

This final phase of our school is presented with a high expectation of academic rigour. Our well-qualified teachers insist on commitment to studies and devotion to excellence.

English is the language of instruction and offered as the home language subject to all pupils. There is a choice between Sepedi and Afrikaans as a first additional language; each pupil is expected to do Life Orientation. Pupils may also choose from Accounting, Business Studies, Computer Application Technology, Engineering Graphics and Design, Geography, History, Information Technology, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy and Physical Sciences.

An hour is set aside each week for pupils to go to a spiritual activity. Pupils are expected to remain committed to the extra-curricular programme through Grade 10-12. Grade 12s are excused from afternoon activities just before their mid-year examinations.

Extra lessons are offered for all subjects on campus through Grade 10-12. Grade 12s are expected to stay late on Fridays for additional academic contact time.

Our school motto is ‘Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders’. PEPPS has a number of initiatives that ensure that we set each pupil up to take his/her place in society as a leader.

Over and above formal leadership committees in Grades 6 and 7, and in Grades 10 and 11 and a Prefect body in Grade 12, PEPPS ensures that every pupil at every level of the school is encouraged to develop his/her leadership skills. From our youngest to oldest pupils, we explicitly develop attributes of leadership through each year of their schooling.
