Assumption Convent School is a school for girls which provides accessible, high quality education for young people from Pre-grade to Grade 12. A team of dedicated teachers foster self-discipline, respect and responsibility within a Catholic ethos. A small school, with a great vision To measure the greatness of a school, some would count the pupils. At Assumption Convent School we prefer to make the pupils count. There are fewer than 600 pupils in total and classes rarely exceed twenty-five, which enables each individual to be noticed and nurtured. At the same time, the manageable size of the school and its family atmosphere are excellent for staff morale, ensuring long-serving and committed teachers. The result is patient, child-centred education that allows each pupil to discover and develop her unique strengths. This philosophy of caring has been a feature of Assumption Convent since its founding in 1946 by the Missionary Sisters of the Assumption. For more than sixty years our school has offered affordable Christian education that has helped pupils to achieve their maximum potential and use their gifts to make a positive difference to the lives of others. The school is an associate member of the Catholic Schools Board and a member of the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa. It follows the three-term year.
