Northside College


Where Excellence Begins

Northside College is an independent school which offers a smaller classroom environment for Grade 8 and Grade 9. The College caters for pupils who are of above-average ability who would prefer a small-classroom environment.

The objective is to hone and develop skills that would enable the pupil to deal with the demands of high school, both academic and extra-murally.

At the end of grade 9, depending on circumstances and providing the pupil has met the relevant criteria, the pupil will integrate into Northcliff High School.
