Learn about CORE

Centre of Remedial Education

CORE is a small, caring, co-educational independent school that builds on a firmly established reputation of excellence spanning over 40 years. CORE provides personalised remedial education to learners in grade 1 through to grade 7. The classroom environment is highly supportive with classes kept small with a maximum of 14 learners allowing the unique needs of each child to be met. We provide an exceptional and vibrant educational experience for learners through a holistic program based on the CAPS curriculum, that includes a wide range of subjects, sport and cultural pursuits. The emphasis at CORE is on personal attention — socially, emotionally and academically.
