About Us

We opened Sagewood School in 1997 and have grown from starting with 32 pupils to around 100 pupils.  Sagewood is a co-educational school.  Our pupils enjoy a family environment surrounded by a huge polo field and sugarcane fields.

We are a small independent school, registered with ISASA (Independent Schools of Southern Africa). Our school is run with a Christian based ethos.  With small classes and experienced teachers, we are able to give our pupils the attention and encouragement they need to reach their full potential.

“Where every child is a winner”

Why Choose Sagewood Preparatory School?

small classes – caring teachers – family environment- reasonable fees-

Sagewood School is a small independent school catering for pupils from Grade RRR to Grade 7.  We are an English medium co-educational school, situated just outside Gingindlovu on the grounds of a Polo field.  Our pupils are able to enjoy a variety of sports in a rural atmosphere.  We provide a family environment with strong Christian based ethos with traditional morals and values.  We try hard to uphold the motto “where every child is a winner” – by treating each child as an individual.  With smaller classes and experienced, caring teachers it is possible to give each pupil the attention and encouragement they need to reach their full potential.  We are heartened by the successes that many of our past learners achieve when they enter high school.

Compared to other private schools in Zululand, our fees are very reasonable – in fact in 2019 there will only be a R50 per month increase!

Children are the heart of our school.  Sagewood is a warm, caring and close-knit school community, please visit us and see for yourself.

Sagewood has awarded with full accreditation from Umalusi as from 1 November 2018. Accreditation means that Sagewood meets all the standards required by the Umalusi Board. This is a great achievement.  Well done Sagewood!
