Parent Corner


Chistlehurst Academics and Arts was established in 2005 with children like yours* in mind. We are an independent, co-ed English medium high school (grade 8 to 12), specialising in the learning fields of Dance, Drama and Design. Our classes are limited to 16 learners per class, to ensure interactive, personalised teaching. Our teachers are extraordinarily passionate about education and investing in YOUR child’s future.


Yes, we do ’normal’ subjects.

Yes, we have a uniform.

Yes, we are registered with the Department of Education.

Yes, your child CAN attend university with a Matric from us.

Discipline is important to us too, in fact, we have three basic rules (that our code of conduct is based on): NO BULLYING, NO DRUGS, NO RACISM.

Even though we are a ‘private’ school, our fees are ‘normal’ too, because every parents deserves the chance to give their child the best they can.
