Our Vision Slogan
Nurturing African hearts and Global Minds


A happy, cheerful environment is a priority at Virginia Prep. Qualities such as loyalty, courtesy, consideration, tolerance, sportsmanship and respect contribute towards the unique tone and spirit of the school. Whilst a sense of achievement is fostered in team efforts that bring honour to the school as a whole, pupils are also encouraged to think and work independently, and to develop the initiative and skills necessary to enable them to cope with the challenges of the future.

Virginia Prep is a school which offers a wide variety of academic, cultural and sporting activities as well as clubs, hobbies and extension programmes. Our aim is to offer all our pupils a well rounded education in a warm, caring environment.
The school aims to create an atmosphere that is conducive to providing for well-balanced pupils with a strong academic base from which to launch into life. To ensure this, our children receive a structured and carefully planned academic programme from a motivated, dedicated and enthusiastic team of professional educators. Constant positive re-inforcement ensures that we build self-esteem and a healthy self-image.

From the M4 (Ruth First Highway), one takes the Virginia off-ramp (opposite Virginia Airport). Halfway around the circle, proceed up Hinton Grove (+/- 200m) and turn right into Margaret Maytom Avenue. The school is situated on the left with magnificent views of the ocean.
