Gloria Botha School

History:

The school was founded by a few enterprising parents in 1990 in the Helderberg Basin. The school started in the Strand as a satellite school of the Cheré Botha Centre in Bellville. It was founded by Mrs Gloria Botha whose daughter, Cheré, was born with Down syndrome. Even though Cheré died at an early age, the centre developed as the mother school of a few other schools in the Boland and other areas.

In 2004 Gloria Botha School was registered with the Western Cape Department of Education as an independent school (Registration number 0111007560) and is therefore allocated a limited subsidy. With the support of Richard Stuttaford Trust, Pinelands and Garden Cities, we opened our doors at our new premises in Somerset West in 2009.

Curriculum:

The Gloria Botha School has been endorsed by the Department of Social Services as a Non-profit organisation (033-432-NPO) and accredited by SARS as a Public Benefit Organisation with Section 18A status (Registration no 18/11/13/4279), which confers on South African donors the right to claim tax benefits.

We provide a differential curriculum that addresses the developmental challenges of our learners. Gloria Botha School provides a unique opportunity for the holistic development of learners, enabling them to achieve their potential to the greatest degree possible.
