Destiny has launched its annual Good Schools Report, a curated list of South Africa’s top private and public schools. Moreover, this report includes school fees, annual and matric pass rates, and other relevant statistics per school.
“The listings on the following pages shines a light on schools which have implemented innovative teaching methods to ensure the very best outcomes for pupils, regardless of their start in life“, as stated by its Project Editor, Sheena Adams in the July edition.

The list largely focuses on schools who take innovative approaches to science and math. Some of the top private schools are St Anne’s, Glenwood house, Crawford College and Reddam House. A few of the top public schools listed are Grey College, Collegiate Girls’ High School, Parkview Senior Primary and Westerford High School.
The Good Schools Report is going online
Destiny is launching a website (www.goodschoolsreport.com) which will provide a more comprehensive review of education in South Africa. Interestingly, this will include submissions by parents to its listings.It can be challenging to find a good school due to supply and demand (lack of quality schools). Click To Tweet
The expanded focus of the website, will provide a broader assessment of schools and not just a handpicked few. Over and above that, I hope that it will show which qualities other parents value in schools. As a (fairly) new parent the latter point is important to me. My daughter enters primary school in three years and I will be consulting the new website for insights.
Destiny also encourages us to sign up for the Good Schools Report newsletter which I have done.
I will be accessing the website soon after its launch and will share my insights here.
