About The Capstone School
The Capstone School, originally named Children’s World, is an independent Christian School, currently situated in the beautiful suburb of Walmer and set to move to its new campus on Heatherbank Farm in 2017. Since its founding in 1997, the school has steadily built a strong reputation for the excellence of its programs and the character of its school community. Over the past 19 years a number of our past pupils went on to be elected to top leadership positions and achieve top academic honours in the region.
In response to ongoing requests from parents and the community, the governing body elected to position the school as a provider of both pre-primary and primary education. The first cohort of primary pupils was enrolled in 2016. Integral to this transition, the expanded school will relocate to a new campus on Heatherbank Farm in 2017, where it will be known as The Capstone School. Along with the pre-primary phase, Grade 00 to Grade R, the foundation primary phase, Grade 1 to Grade 3 classes will be on offer in 2017, while the Grade 4 to Grade 7 classes wil be rolled out incremetally untill 2020.
The Capstone School’s beautiful new campus is enhanced by the abundance of trees, open spaces, where Egyptian geese play on the lawns and horses feed in the meadow. The beauty, history and traditions of Heatherbank Farm combine with the new to create a different, peaceful teaching-learning environment where our pupils can grow their own vegetables and learn through the environment. The Capstone School will be housed in the original homestead of the Lovemore family, sheltered between giant Fig trees and a beautiful pond in the heart of Port Elizabeth.
