Welcome to Fernhill School “Where Students Enjoy the Learning Journey” in a unique, nurturing and fun learning environment. Fernhill offers a positive, holistic learning experience which prepares students for life. Rooted and grounded in a firm Christian ethos, we strive to help each student maximise their potential in partnership with their parents. At Fernhill we celebrate the beautiful diversity of South African society.

At Fernhill we nurture enthusiastic, avid students who are ready to embrace all the learning adventures and opportunities set before them. To this end we integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Sports through real-life application. STEAMS integration is the innovative balance that prepares & encourages our students to embrace inquiry, collaboration and strategic problem-solving to promote deeper learning and understanding.




Established in 1985 as Wonderworld, Fernhill Early Learning Centre continues to build on our foundation of excellence and experience. Our unique, world-class programmes maximise Early Childhood Development in an environment where children learn through love, caring, fun and sharing. Children are prepared to become lifelong learners with a solid foundation.



GRADE 0000 – GRADE 00

Fernhill Pre-Primary offers a structured, stimulating curriculum which provides the basis for mastery in a number of foundational and preparation skills in a number of areas, including language, mathematics, motor, memory, visual, auditory, social and life skills. The child who masters these skills will have the self-confidence to explore their environment and enjoy their learning journey – equipping them for life.




Fernhill Primary follows a differentiated, holistic approach to education. This is achieved in a small class environment where each student can progress at his or her own pace and level in an enriching and stimulating learning environment. In the process we are enabling independent, confident and skilled students who are ready to accept and conquer the challenges of the 21st Century.

Everyone at Fernhill took exceptional care of Ivan especially with his kidney problems. Ivan was always given emotional support and was well monitored. Keep on doing your wonderful work and I hope that your school will go from strength to strength – L Zlatorov.
You manage the school in a very professional, caring, nurturing and honest manner. The children are always the priority. It was not just a school – it was more like a day time home… – Deon and Mogani.
I have been at your school for almost 8 years… and I have to say that you will have to search far and wide to find a school as committed and dedicated to our children as Fernhill – M & J Benade.
We would like to thank you and your staff for all the effort put in with our child. He really has grown up to be a lovely, disciplined little boy. He really did learn a lot at Fernhill. – D & D Naidoo.
Kaileen has been at Fernhill since she was 7 months old and she has grown into a young girl that we are very proud of. She is respectful, thoughtful and appreciative of the world around her. Fernhill has played a huge role in helping her achieve these attributes and we are therefore very thankful for the time she has spent at your school. I have not had a single day of Kaileen being unhappy at school and it is because of the fun environment and caring culture that is displayed by everyone at school… – A & P Govender.
After eleven years of having our three children in your safe care, “thank you” doesn’t seem anything like enough when we think of the wonderful and happy times that Adam, Sarah and Simon have had. They have learned so much… they have also learned social skills and a lot of other important life-long lessons from the nurturing they’ve had at Fernhill. We feel unbelievably privileged to have been part of your school for so long, and all that it has done for our children will be with them forever – H & M Bazeley.

“Thank you” is not enough for what you have done for us during the past two years. You have gone the extra mile on more than one occasion for Martilize and me.

Thank you for being so involved in all our major milestones and for your unconditional love and support at all times – C & V Morgan.
Dankie vir die afgelope 5 wonderlike jare wat my seuntjie kon deel wees by die fantastiese kleuterskool. Die onderwysers en jy het ‘n baie belangrike rol gespeel in my kind se lewe – emosioneel, fisies en intellektueel en daarvoor sal ek nooit genoeg kan dankie sê nie. Ek glo dat Cameron altyd sy Fernhill jare sal onthou as die beste pretvolle jare op sy pad na sukses en volwassenheid. Ek sê sukses want met so spesiale grondslag kan ‘n kind net vorentoe kyk. Ons as gesin gaan julle baie mis en altyd verwys na Fernhill as die beste kleuterskool in Randburg – M Meyer.
