Reddam House Waterfall preparatory school


Reddam House Waterfall is a co-educational and non-denominational environment designed to recognise, nurture and develop the individuality of each student placed in our care and to extend students to their maximum potential in all aspects of education. Our teachers understand the need not only for the importance of teaching the required curriculum, but also for forming a relationship with your child, a relationship that is built on trust and mutual respect.

All students in our Preparatory School are required to participate in at least two extra-curricular activities per week. One sporting and one cultural. We encourage as much participation and involvement as possible. The extra-curricular time table caters for beginners, as well as, those students who are at a provincial level in their particular activity. The Music @ Reddam programme is a wonderful curriculum offering for all students in Grades 4 – 6. This programme involves an individual instrumental music lesson, as well as, participation in an ensemble. All students are involved in the Reddam Gives Back Programme, whereby each class chooses a project in the wider community and facilitates the needs of their chosen programme during the year.

Should you have any queries, or if you would like to meet with the Head or any other members of staff, please do not hesitate to contact the school in order to make an appointment. We look forward to your positive support as we strive for the best possible education for your child.


It is my sincere wish that we, the staff, parents and students of Reddam House Waterfall, can collectively work towards building on the success of the school and making it an environment that acknowledges the gift of our diversity, recognising the uniqueness of each individual and harnessing the collective wisdom of all stakeholders towards extending our teaching and learning. Thus we will create a sense of belonging and a true connection between one another as a second family.

— Mr Quinton Pascoe, Head of Preparatory School
