Oakley House School is a leading independent special needs school in Cape Town, providing quality education from grades R – 12 for those who struggle to achieve their full potential in large traditional schools.
We recognise that our students are unique learners, that they process information differently to what is expected in a conventional classroom, and we understand that they need a different approach to learning.
At Oakley House School, we embrace that difference.
Since opening its doors in 2007 with just ten children, in a beautiful cottage with a large oak tree in the garden, Oakley House School has been empowering children with specific learning difficulties and differences to recognise and optimise their potential.
Oakley House was founded on the belief that every child who learns differently can learn, that they are entitled to an inspiring educational environment with teaching tailored to how they learn best.... With this ethos embedded in all that we do, we have developed a reputation that has attracted attention to our school from across the globe.
As you step through the doors of our school, you know it is a special place. From the carefully orchestrated play in grade R to the focussed head-down-work in grade 12, there are sounds of learning echoing from every classroom. There is so much to see here – come and see us in action.
And with the inception of our Training and Support Centre in 2017, we are excited at the possibilities of our specialised training programmes, educating those in the field of special needs teaching with best practices in the classroom.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school. We are enormously proud of the amazing achievements of our children and young people over the years, and feel sure you will share our enthusiasm for our unique learning community.
