Archers College is best known for the extra care and love we have for each and every child that enters our doors. We will always strive to educate our leaders of tomorrow with heart and that is why we have been deemed the school that is a “home away from home.” “Education is a journey that lasts a lifetime…” We hope to have you join us soon, as we walk this journey together in providing your child with the very BEST educational experience!
Mission and Vision
The idea of starting the school came about as a result of various conversations over the many years between friends who all belonged to the same faith. The pre-primary was originally started in a built-on room of the family home. As the pre-primary class began to grow and our community of parents prompted us to expand to include a primary school, plans were put in motion to do just that.
In 2010, Archers College opened its doors to the new primary school. At this time, the owners moved out of the family home to accommodate the pre-primary and primary schools. However, initially as a result of a small number of enrolments, grades were mutli-graded, i.e. Grade 1’s – 3’s were taught together. Archers College has continued to enjoy tremendous success and growth since opening our doors. Each pre-primary class and Grades 1 – 3 are currently now single-graded, in their own classrooms, with no more than 15 learners in each class. New classrooms were built on at the end of 2013 to accommodate the continued and future growth being experienced and presently extend through to a complete Preparatory School.
Whilst Archers College only started out with 6 learners, we are happy to have at present 85 learners enrolled. We have never had the need to advertise, but rather through “word-of-mouth” of satisfied parents, we have been able to attract new members to welcome to our “family.”
From the beginning, the school we know today has celebrated many milestones, which amongst others are:
• The official opening of the Pre-Primary School in 2007.
• Registered with the Gauteng Department of Education.
• The official opening of the Primary School in 2010.
• The graduation of the first Grade 7 pupils in 2012.
• The establishment of the Archers College PTA in January 2013.
• Our first MAJOR School production was held, entitled “A Trip Through Disneyland” in August 2013.
• The building of two new classrooms for use in 2014.
While we acknowledge that there are schools smaller, larger and more advanced than ours, we do believe Archers College is special and has a unique niche in providing education. We are proud of the quality of our staff and the quality of education we provide for all children that enter our doors.We eagerly look forward to what is still in store for Archers College and your child.
