Our School

Saxonwold Primary School is a Multi-Cultural, Co-Educational Public School that offers education from Grade R-7.

Our school is situated close to Oxford Road, Johannesburg, South Africa, yet it seems a million miles from the hustle and bustle of our cosmopolitan city.

Saxonwold Primary School is convenient, not only for the people living in the neighbouring suburbs, but also for parents commuting to the city from further afield.


We prepare our learners for the future through world-class learning and teaching tools.

Our Multi-million Rand Innovation Hub was built to help our learners attain future skills like critical thinking, collaboration, problem-solving, innovation and creativity.

We are a Google School, making learning and teaching engaging and empowering for our learners and staff. Click below to view more.

We’ve designed a wondrous world to foster the daily development of infant minds and bodies. Creating a strong bond and a setting that feels like family.
