Greensleeves school

Greensleeves has an onsite primary school, providing quality and rounded education to our own children and private children from the surrounding farms, villages and townships. 

How our school works

Grade PR - 7         7:30am - 1pm      55 Students    

From Grade R to Grade 7 we have a team of excellent and experienced teachers who have classes of no more than 10 students each. 


Many of the children at our school come from difficult pasts after being abandoned, abused or orphaned. For these children to overcome and thrive we believe a quality education, tailored to their individual needs is essential. 

We have an established curriculum matched with one-to-one lessons where we can work to strengthen key skills and the children can feel valued, understood and encouraged. 


“Johan* is 14, he arrived at Greensleeves 4 years ago after being removed from his family for safety reasons, unable to read or write.

Johan is growing into a confident and motivated young man who is now equipped to achieve, and able to realise his full potential.”
