Yellowwoods Vision:

At Yellowwoods School we strive to mould our learners into independent, caring and confident individuals, within a supportive environment and based on Christian values. Being a Country School, we aim to expose our learners to different educational experiences both in and outside the classroom while maintaining the highest possible standard.

 Yellowwoods Mission Statement:




Our intimate classroom environment offers individual attention and provides our learners with a high level of academic instruction ensuring that each one of them reaches their full potential.

We pride ourselves in having a strong remedial support structure. We have qualified staff who are trained and equipped to assist individual learners in areas of weakness.

Arts and Culture:

Learners are exposed to arts and culture lessons as part of their academic curriculum. From painting, to singing and playing a musical instrument, to acting in the annual school play, we offer a full spectrum of opportunities in which learners are able to shine.


The extramural activities on offer form a compulsory part of the school program. Emphasis is placed on teaching sportsmanship, building self-esteem and developing skills.


Our highly qualified, motivated and enthusiastic teaching staff form the bases of a sound and all-round educational experience for the learners.

Weekly Boarding:

 Yellowwoods boarding facilities offer a family-like environment to all boarders, being a true ‘home away from home’.

Outdoor Education:

Based at the foot of the beautiful Kroomie Mountains, set amongst lush farm land, our learners are privileged to experience much that the outdoors has to offer. We strive to create memorable experiences making the most of our rich Eastern Cape surroundings.

  • We will educate our children according to appropriate academic syllabus using methods that develop lateral thinking, creativity and communication skills.
