There are a number of really top schools in Newlands and Claremont, both public and private, from which to choose.
These schools have maintained an excellent reputation over the past decades, and I would have no hesitation placing a child in any of these schools.
They have a strong tradition and sense of place of their history and have delivered consistently all round results and well balanced students year after year.

Grove Primary School. The school is widely known for its progressive and innovative position in South African education. The staff is highly qualified and experienced, and interacts with different sectors of the South African educational community.
Sans Souci Girls High School

Sans Souci fosters the sort of relationships which are so necessary for optimal development during the high school phase.
As a smaller school, there are many more opportunities for leadership, especially in the higher grades.
