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. It is fast becoming a school of preference serving the needs of the Pretoria community,  in general  and also has a strong academic reputation in Southern Africa.

The custom built campus has been designed to meet the needs of the modern Caps curriculum with general purpose classrooms being enhanced by specialised centers for Art, Computer Application Technology,  Design, Drama, Hospitality Studies,  Information Technology,  Life Science, and Physical Science.  Extra curricular activities are annually hosted in indoor Sport Centre’s and Performing Art Theaters.

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 a leading Grade 8-12 Senior High School in the ranking of Top Independent Schools offering the National Senior Certificate exit exam.

With the introduction of the new CAPS 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 three 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 called “Cafe Flava”, a state-of the-art coffee shop called ‘Full Cream Cafe’, in a very safe and secure Security Park environment.
