About Us

Welcome to Crawford College Sandton

Since its inception, Crawford Sandton has achieved top academic results in the country and has repeatedly been awarded “Top Independent School” by the Gauteng Department of Education. We are equally proud of our achievements in the cultural, sporting and community service spheres.

Welcome to Crawford College Sandton. We are a co-educational, multicultural school conveniently situated near the Sandton CBD. Widely acknowledged to have a superb teaching...

staff, an exceptional extramural programme and consistently top results, the Sandton College is also a very happy, vibrant and exciting campus.

Our students constantly achieve top academic results and we are proud to be a “Top Feeder School” to the University of the Witwatersrand yet again! Every year Crawford Sandton students rank in the top students in the province, many with a ‘full house’ of distinctions. Their performance at University and their later careers indicates that they are equipped with the personal, thinking and leadership skills to ensure successful and fulfilling lives. Most important, our students achieve a 100% pass rate and we are confident that every student receives the best education available for him or her.

The Sandton College is also proud of its achievements in the cultural fields. Every year we are winners of many Public Speaking trophies, numerous debates and are the hosts of the widely acclaimed One Act Play Festival held at the Theatre on the Square. Our Art and Design departments are highly praised for the creativity and skill evident in the work produced.

A wide range of sports is available for every ability level and they focus on team building, spirit and participation. We have also achieved excellence in a number of sports, being one of the top swimming schools in Johannesburg, soccer champions and having a number of formidable netball teams.

Most importantly, our students graduate as confident individuals with a strong social conscience, well prepared for the demands of the world. Their success at local universities as well as campuses such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Brown and Oxford indicate that they leave the College with the skills and knowledge to excel at the highest levels.

We welcome enquiries and visitors and encourage you to contact us if you would like to find out more about our school.
