About Greenwich College

 

Greenwich College was established in 1998. We were first situated at 4 Main street, Bordeaux and as we grew our search to find and move to a bigger property started. This was achieved in November 2004 when we found our school in Bryanston, Johannesburg, South-Africa. Then started the search for another property which could accommodate sports, in 2018 we found just such a property at 212 Voortrekker Road, Monument Extension 1, Krugersdorp. We are currently working on expanding and building more classrooms as the college grows from strength to stregth.

 

The college strive to offer students an alternative to the South-African schooling system and that is Internationally recognised. The Cambridge system better prepares students for University life and studies and the education received through us are acceptable for entrance to Universities worldwide. We are therefor able to accomodate students locally and from other parts of the world whose parents may be in South Africa on a working contract for a few years, i.e. Embassy Staff, as the student can continue with the same syllabus and system when moving on to another country.

 

Greenwich College has a proud record of students who have gone on to local and overseas Universities, becoming top achievers in faculties of Medicine, Engineering, Commerce and Law amongst others.

 

We follow a four term academic calendar similar to the South-African school terms so as to accomodate families with siblings in other schools. Our fourth term are utilised for the Cambridge International Examinations which takes place from the start of October until mid November.

 

The college has a relaxed atmosphere and utilizes a unique structure to ensure  that attendance and progress in studies are met, without being regiment. Feedback to parents is a big factor in this approach, which is not intended to require more from parents but to make them aware and encourage their child.


Feedback to Parents

 

Parents can, through the Greenwich College website with their own login details, be made aware on an hourly basis of such things as attendance, completed homework, marks from previous tests, etc. Parents also get emailed with all relevant feedback.

Assessment Policy

A system of continuous assessment is followed in all grades. Students should therefor apply themselves regularly throughout the year and not work for controlled tests or examinations only. Each terms marks will include a class mark component based on a variety of class assignments, science labs and class tests as well as a standarised control test which is set from Cambridge test and marking memos (including grade thresh holds which vary).

October/November examinations are set by Cambridge International Examinations and students write the exams at the school.

 

Reports on Progress

Parents will receive a username and password which will allow them easy access to our daily updated register system, this allows the parent to see if the student has missed a class; homework done/given; class test marks and the term reports.

For students wishing to apply to Universities, second term reports are used as a more accurate mark reflection and what the student is capable of, students must ensure to obtain good grades throughout the year.

The daily report system is intended as a means of bringing pressure to those students who are under-achieving. Subject teachers can comment on lessons and is available for follow up. Homework is also loaded to the same system on a daily basis and contains due dates of each section of homework set.
