Our Students

I love North Riding. When we have free time, we get to do work on the chrome books, and every day we learn lots of new things! My favorite time of day is math time because we learn equations. I also really like to learn new words, and play football too!

School Leadership

Our diverse learning team comes from some of the best institutions for learning in South Africa, and around the world. We are incredibly selective in recruiting top talent, and only about 5% of teachers that apply are given an offer to join the team. The Nova Pioneer approach to teaching and learning is not what you find at other Cambridge schools. Classes are hands-on and interactive, and classrooms are student-centered, which means that the teacher guides the student to discover solutions themselves, rather than simply telling a student how to solve the problem. All of our teachers undergo rigorous training before ever teaching a class at Nova Pioneer, and this professional development continues throughout the year.

A Day in the Life

The journey of becoming a leader and innovator starts early, and our primary school students are developing the building blocks of this mindset from a young age. At Nova Pioneer Primary, the enquiring mind of the student is given freedom to explore and investigate the world using different modalities as they learn and make sense of classroom content. With the guidance of a teacher, we give our students the opportunity to discover, develop and test personal theories leading to a richer understanding of concepts. Nova Pioneer students develop into life-long learners who can uncover their talents and potential.
