OUR COLLEGE | GRADES 7 TO 12

Reddam House Umhlanga students are inspired to achieve academic success. Communication and confidence are nurtured in the compulsory subject of Public Speaking at the Grade 8 and 9 level.

The freedom to choose subjects that are in keeping with a student’s aptitude, strengths and future career path is integral to our academic offering. A passion for performance finds articulation in the Visual Art, Dramatic Art, Music and Dance studios whilst equal emphasis is placed on scientific discovery and logic in the Physical and Life Science laboratories. Mathematics is a key subject area in which students are guided in choosing either Mathematics or the more practical Mathematical Literacy, but the more capable mathematician is extended to take on the extra subject of Advanced Programme Mathematics, coding & robotics, IT, Computer Applications Technology (CAT) & Engineering Graphics and design (EGD).

Reddam House Umhlanga prides itself in having committed, creative and experienced teachers who can foster constructive relationships with their students. They go beyond the confines of the curriculum and constantly seek new ways to foster a love for learning. Small class sizes, regular cycle test assessments to ensure the on-going acquisition of both skills and knowledge, and quick feedback to students ensure academic success.

For those requiring extra assistance there are afternoon support teaching lessons that are offered free of charge by our staff.

Reddam House Umhlanga students write the Independent Examination Board IEB) school-leaving certificate at the end of Grade 12. The IEB’s credentials and integrity are acknowledged worldwide, granting our students opportunities to study at both local and overseas universities. Furthermore, the critical thinking skills cultivated in preparing our students for the IEB examinations are those that are required to succeed at tertiary level and professionally in the 21st Century.
