Welcome to Abbotts College Pretoria East

Since our campus was opened in January 2006, Abbotts College, Pretoria, has gone from strength to strength, making a significant impact on the education scene in Pretoria East.

The custom built campus has been designed to meet the needs of the modern curriculum with general purpose classrooms being enhanced by specialised centers for Art, Design, Biology, Science, Computer Science and since January 2008, a modern training kitchen for Hospitality Studies.

The handpicked staff is set to continue and to indeed build, on the unsurpassed record of Abbotts College which has resulted in the College being acknowledged as the leading Grade 10, 11 and 12 Senior High School in the country.

With the introduction of the new FET curriculum, Abbotts College has anticipated the impact of the implementation of this new curriculum and has taken the necessary steps to ensure our students are equipped to excel. Abbotts College is extremely proud of its record and is aware that an investment in private education is a very significant one.

The Abbotts environment nurtures individuality and allows students to come into their own. By virtue of this and the exceptionally dedicated ethos of learning engendered by the staff, all students excel as they are encouraged and flourish in a sound, disciplined and carefully monitored environment.

Due to market demand for an “Abbotts” education, the College has expanded in recent years and schools are mushrooming in Gauteng, with students enrolling from all over Africa to ensure acceptance to South African universities.

The Silver Lakes campus in Pretoria East is located in two modern buildings in the Tijger Vallei Office Park, which houses extra modern classrooms, an entertainment area with a pool table and tennis table next to the modern Hospitality Studies kitchen and the canteen, a state-of the-art coffee shop called ‘Full Cream Cafe’, in a very safe and secure Security Park environment.

Abbotts College promises you happy, fulfilled and successful Senior High School years with guaranteed access to tertiary studies on completion of your Matric.

“Every teacher’s only challenge should be to get each and every student they teach to reach his or her true potential”. With this dream in mind, we at Abbotts College Pretoria East aim to provide the best possible education and individual help to all our students. The key to success at Abbotts College lies in our individual approach. We reward students for their individual efforts and that allows our students across the academic spectrum to achieve. A child’s self-image is important and needs to be nurtured all the time.

The unique Abbotts’ structures, combined with the eight important Abbotts’ values set within a disciplined environment, enable us to support and maximize every student’s potential.

We pride ourselves in fulfilling our students’ dreams.
