With a firmly entrenched commitment to the development of each child in a faith based, personal and caring environment, Abeille Ruche School produces confident, happy, self-disciplined children with high academic grades.

Abeille Ruche School started as a home school in 2000, and following the proven success of our approach to education, has grown to offer classes from Grades 1 to 9. We have also introduced a Grade 10 – 12 option at our school, following the Cambridge curriculum.

Whilst following the Western Cape Education Department curriculum, we still hold to the ethos of home schooling, but have honed and improved on it to offer a unique approach to education that will equip children to excel through their school years and achieve the highest possible Matriculation results at the end.

The name “Abeille Ruche” (AH-BAY REESH), which means “The Beehive” in French, is based on the concept of a beehive where everyone works together in harmony, with clear communication and commitment to producing a beautiful end product (the honey in the beehive’s case, a well-balanced, happy and academically astute learner in ours).

Each child is of utmost importance – we are not about the business of education but rather about the children themselves. Restricted pupil numbers ensures that our classes remain at a maximum of 14 per class and ensures that our pupils are not “lost” in the classroom but given individual attention, are stimulated and eager to learn.
