“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”

– John Dewey


Oaklands High School is located on the corner of Racecourse and Chukker Road in Lansdowne and has been in existence since 1955. It has more than a thousand learners and consists of the rainbow of our new South African nation. Children from all walks of life attend our school and we are proud of the way in which the school has managed to integrate children from diverse backgrounds. 

We have a proud history of academic excellence at our school. Our school is a Mathematics and Science Focus School. Many of our ex learners have gone on to become leading members in their chosen professions as well as in their communities.

We have a dedicated staff of highly qualified educators who are passionate about teaching and who support their learners to achieve the highest honours.

In 2012 we moved into our state of the art campus equipped with various laboratories, computer rooms, a library, as well as a hall which can accommodate the entire school body. We have won a special award for our Mathematics results which enabled us to purchase a number of interactive whiteboards. This has meant that our educators and learners now have access to the latest technology to improve teaching and learning at our school. Our campus is Wi-Fi enabled and we encourage the use of technology in teaching and learning.

Many extra and co curricular activities are also offered at our school and as our playing fields are developed further activities are planned for the future.

At Oaklands High School we create an environment where learners are disciplined, dedicated and are able to develop their full potential with a view to them becoming leading, valuable members of society when they leave our care.
