Our students


Nova Pioneer is an independent school network that offers private school education, using the Cambridge Curriculum, an internationally accredited curriculum. Our secondary 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. Nova Pioneer West Secondary is now accepting Grade 8 applications for 2023 and will be incubated at our current North Riding campus, thereafter moving to our Ruimsig campus.

The school team

Since the beginning of 2017, Nova Pioneer has served families living in the Randburg area with a Pre-primary and Primary School – accepting children from Grade 1 to Grade 7. We are excited to announce that we will extend our offering to families seeking quality private secondary school education beginning in 2023. In January next year, Nova Pioneer West Secondary School will welcome the first Grade 8 class. The inaugural grade 8 class will join the current Upper Primary students at our North Riding Campus, in Jackal Creek, before moving to a newly built campus in 2026. Our Secondary 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.

Psychosocial support

The mental health and wellbeing of children is recognised as a critical condition for optimal learning and development. Nova Pioneer's Psychosocial Support Team, consisting of psychologists, intern psychologists and registered counsellors are available to provide social, emotional and learning support, including counselling and therapy, to students who are in need. Our therapists also work alongside teachers to maximize student support in the classroom and to create ongoing opportunities for social and emotional learning.

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.

Grant Son, 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.

Joco Solomons, 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.
