Our Students

Nova Pioneer’s unique approach to education will make you reimagine what is possible for your child. Nova Pioneer brings a rigorous and innovative approach to education that focuses on developing each individual’s full potential. Our students learn the material they need to excel at exams through methods that simultaneously develop the critical thinking, creativity, and strength of character that they will need to build successful and fulfilling careers in today’s world.

School Leadership

Our diverse learning team comes from some of the best institutions for learning in South Africa, and around the world. We are incredibly selective in recruiting top talent, and only about 5% of teachers that apply are given an offer to join the team. The Nova Pioneer approach to teaching and learning is not what you find at other Cambridge schools. Classes are hands-on and interactive, and classrooms are student-centered, which means that the teacher guides the student to discover solutions themselves, rather than simply telling a student how to solve the problem. All of our teachers undergo rigorous training before ever teaching a class at Nova Pioneer, and this professional development continues throughout the year.

A Day in the Life

Today’s youth will encounter a future that will look and work differently than the world does today, and that will continue to evolve during their lifetime. At Nova Pioneer, our learning experience ensures that we’re preparing our students to shape and lead that future, not simply work in it. We know that our students will have different passions, interests, and talents, and we will work closely with each individual student as they continue to develop their unique abilities. Nova Pioneer empowers all of our students to uncover their personal potential, and sets them up for post-secondary success.
