SPARK Schools provides Singapore-quality education for R19 400 per year

South Africa consistently ranks as having one of the worst education systems in the world.

This has led to a proliferation of private schools, most of which are unaffordable to even middleclass South Africans.

Enter SPARK Schools

Build on the belief that quality and affordability are not mutually exclusive when it comes to excellent education – it currently has 15 campuses (and counting) in Gauteng and the Western Cape.

Tuition for 2018 is R19 400 per year (discounted fee) while the fee for 2019 is R21 300 (discounted fee, if paid before the start of 2019).

There’s a monthly fee for parents unable afford the once-off discounted fee mentioned above.

The monthly fee for 2018 is R2100 (paid over 10 months) while the fee for 2019 is R2310 (paid over 10 months).

We benchmark against Singapore for maths and against the UK for literacy.
