About Us

Message from the principal:

For any parent, choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision as all they really want is for their child to be happy.

At Crawford Preparatory La Lucia we are committed to offer the highest quality education for our pupils.  We create an environment where our children are happy and their talents are discovered and developed through the many exciting opportunities and activities that...

we offer.

Education at our school is not only about ensuring that our curriculum is stimulating, challenging and relevant but also about developing our children’s self-belief, ensuring they are cared for, that they are recognized as unique individuals and that they have a sense of belonging.

We are blessed to have wonderful teachers at our school who create magic for each child in the classroom every day.  Committed and caring, they make learning interesting, fun and meaningful.

Our teachers know that every child is a masterpiece and they work exceptionally hard to help each child to become the best that they can be.

Important 21st century skills that are required in our complex and dynamic world forms part of our curriculum.

At Crawford Preparatory La Lucia we help our pupils to love learning, have the courage to try new things and to realize that there are no limits to what they can achieve if they are prepared to work hard.

As a school we will always focus on good manners, caring for and respecting others, honesty, kindness and working together as a team.

We have magnificent sports facilities and our pupils participate in a variety of activities at developmental, social and competitive levels.  Cultural enrichment is built into the school curriculum and also offered as extra-mural options.  Our pupils are encouraged from a young age to express themselves through drama, music, art and dance.  These daily experiences fulfill a vital educational function as active participation adds to the all-round development of our children.

Crawford Preparatory La Lucia is situated in Armstrong Avenue and caters for boys and girls from Grade 1 to Grade 7.  The beautiful premises is located within a conservancy and has magnificent views of the Indian Ocean.

Admissions for new enrolments start early.  To avoid disappointment, parents are advised to begin the application process well in advance.  In some cases there may be a waiting list.

Admission is based primarily on a personal interview during which an appraisal of the applicant is conducted.  Pupils will be required to undergo an assessment. On acceptance, a non-refundable deposit is payable.

If we can be of any further assistance, we would love to hear from you.
