The school is set in a perfect countryside of fields, trees, dams, wildlife, farms and fountains where our pupils are privileged to be able to enjoy a broad, holistic education, in a relaxed and aesthetic environment.
Teachers are able to take their classroom 'outside' which certainly enhances learning and instills a deep and spiritual appreciation for the environment.
Camaraderie and spirit between the pupils, teachers and parents is consistently heartwarming and supportive.
A nutritious lunch is served daily to the entire school before sport and prep sessions.
Reliable and safe transport is provided from Adelaide, Alice and Fort Beaufort.
Yellowwoods has excellent facilities. Two new classrooms were built in 2009 and our garage was converted into a classroom in 2011.
The average pupil-teacher ratio is 12:1. This allows for the teachers to focus on the individual, cater for specific needs and enrich top students in all the classes.
The classrooms are bright, comfortable, spacious and overflowing with high quality and excellent teaching aids including projectors and interactive whiteboards.
Each year the pupils participate in various Olympiads, such as Conquesta and we are proud of the excellent results achieved at Yellowwoods. Our overall Conquesta rating in 2009 was 71% - 12% above the national average.
We were placed in the top 20internationally in our Computer Literacy results.
We celebrate the diversity of our students from varied cultural backgrounds.

Independent schools are allowed - and required, to expel a child if deemed necessary. On enrolment, every child/parent/guardian formally commit themselves to our Code of Conduct (specifically recommended by the Independent Schools Association of South Africa).
