Why Choose The Ridge?

Established in 1919, The Ridge School is one of Johannesburg’s oldest and finest English-medium boys’ preparatory schools. It is situated on 16 acres of the historic Westcliff Ridge, off Jan Smuts Avenue and Valley Road. With a strong sense of history, but firmly rooted in its modern contemporary environment, The Ridge School continues into its 10th decade to provide the boys with a holistic approach to education and the lessons of life.

We offer an exceptional, balanced education which instils respect for self and enthusiastically embraces diversity. Our aim is the development of a confident individual with a generous spirit and responsible character. Our progressive ethos, based on Christian values, is dedicated to the flourishing of learning and community development.
