Gallagher Combined School

Balanced education | Individual attention | Work & play

Small Classes

At our Midrand school we keep our classes small (maximum 25, 2022 average 14), so that each child receives individual attention to maximise progress. Grades 10 and upwards are limited to 15 learners.

We start at Grade 1


We believe in a balanced education consisting of learning, socializing and exercise!


The Japanese abacus (soroban) is a special compulsory subject that teaches a love of numbers, arithmetic and mathematics up to grade 6.


Compulsory computer lessons take place in our dedicated computer room. Learners progress from elementary computer literacy to progressively more advanced techniques.


Sport is compulsory. We have our own playing field at the school for soccer. Netball is played on a hard surface, also at the school.


We teach chess to compliment the Japanese abacus as this is another of the very few activities that use both sides of the brain co-operatively on the same task.


Swimming is voluntary and at an extra cost. Lessons are weekly, during school hours and year-round in a heated pool.
