In 2013, the student body comprised 1000 students, and demand continues to grow each year.

Students are welcomed into a classically-constructed wood and stone school - a charming building, ideally suited to our Waterfall campus' rustic, green setting. The tranquil grounds offer an inspiring atmosphere of discovery, learning, and unlimited growth.


A History of Service

"Tutum Te Rebore Reddam"

The Reddam motto originates in Scottish history with the first Monarch of Crawford, who saved King David the First of Scotland from certain death by a stag during a hunting expedition. The Monarch of Crawford adopted the motto “Tutum Te Rebore Reddam”, which means “I will keep you safe by my strength".

Subsequently, his coat of arms included a stag’s head, symbolising the monarch's bravery. Upon marrying his wife, the monarch included the fleur-de-lis in his coat of arms, and the Crawford clan's coat of arms incorporates the stag and fleur-de-lis to this day.

In 1999, Mrs Crawford-Kempster, Director of Reddam House, worked with Mr Burnell, the State Herald at the Bureau of Heraldry in Pretoria, to create a coat of arms for Reddam House. To honour the family's history, the coat of arms incorporates elements of the stag and the fleur-de-lis. Our school motto is “We shall give back”, which reminds our students of the importance of contributing to the community.

Bev has been immersed in Education for almost forty years and has circumnavigated the full spectrum of educative phases. Being a lifelong student, she started off by completing a Higher Diploma of Education majoring in Mathematics, followed by a BA Degree and Honours Degree in Psychology and finally married the two disciplines when completing her master’s degree and PhD in the Psychology of Education.

Her teaching career spans over many years in both teaching and management positions. In 2011 she entered corporate education working at AdvTech as a National Academics Co-Ordinator. This position encompassed working with teachers and management in the various brands of schools and allowed her to research international trends in education and allowed her many opportunities to visit schools both nationally and internationally. In 2015 she joined Reddam House Early Learning School, the one phase that was missing in my teaching career. Managing staff and young children aged one to six in a Reggio Inspired school is her swan song.

She is inspired daily by  young children aged one to six who have encouraged her to actively listen, closely engage and share their joy of learning.
