Nova Pioneer is an independent school network that offers private school education, using the Cambridge Curriculum, an internationally accredited curriculum. Our Nova Pioneer Midrand Senior School brings a rigorous and innovative approach to education that focuses on developing each individual’s full potential. At Nova Pioneer, we share in our parents’ aspiration of preparing each child to enter the world with confidence and competence, ready to thrive and to contribute. We believe our learning approach prepares our students to lead and succeed post school. Applications for 2023 are now open for grades 8 and 9.
The school team
Since 2017, Nova Pioneer has served families with children in pre-primary and primary grades. At the beginning of 2022, the Midrand Campus welcomed the first Grade 8 class. Nova Pioneer Midrand Senior School students joined the current Upper Primary students on the newly built campus located on Third Road (less than 250m from the current school campus). The new site is an extension of the original campus on Matuka Crescent. Our Senior School offers the Cambridge Curriculum, an internationally recognised curriculum. Cambridge qualifications are internationally recognised, opening doors for Nova Pioneer students to universities in South Africa and worldwide. We are proud to be one of a few South African schools that offer the Cambridge Curriculum.

Grant Son, Nova Pioneer Parent
I think the the community meetings the children have are fantastic. We as a family believe firmly that community awareness and community responsibility is one of the core fundamentals in society. Without a strong community, society in itself will fold. Therefore, the fact that Nova Pioneer encourages our children to be responsible and caring and giving, is probably the MOST noteworthy experience.
Joco Solomons, Nova Pioneer Parent
We decided on Nova Pioneer because we loved the concept of the enquiry-based learning as well as how the school is so committed to nurturing children into becoming young adults who think rigorously about the future of the world. My daughter has grown by leaps and bounds during her tenure at Nova Pioneer. She is very innovative and has become a go-getter which makes me so proud. Nova Pioneer is a great school.
Shaneel Nunkha, Nova Pioneer Parent
The small classroom sizes was what initially drew us to Nova Pioneer. The idea of our child receiving individual attention was an attractive offering. We have enjoyed the Friday Exploration day feedback sessions where parents get to interact with the students and get an understanding of what they do during the sessions and what they have learned throughout the term. The Nova Pioneer learning approached has had a positive influence on my child's curiosity, always questioning and trying to understand life skills.
