Ideally located in the Tygerberg area of Cape Town, Reddam House Durbanville acquired Chesterhouse School in 2016. Inspired immediately started the building of the College on a magnificent piece of land next door; the Clara Anna Fontein lifestyle estate, which now houses the College.

The decision to restructure Chesterhouse School as a Reddam House was based on the desire to create the most outstanding educational institution in Cape Town.   

Reddam House Durbanville caters for children from 1 year old to Grade 12. The school comprises two campuses, the old Chesterhouse campus that houses the Early Learning School (ELS) as well as the Junior and Senior Preparatory School, and the spectacular new Clara Anna Fontein campus, housing the College campus for students from Grade 8 – 12.

The Reddam House teaching philosophy is applied to amplify the students’ educational experience. Students can expect outstanding teaching staff; new timetables to further support academic achievement, an enhanced curriculum as well as more focused training and deeper learning.




For the past 20 years, Reddam House has offered students an enriching environment in which they can transition from their early teenage years into young adulthood. The premises of Reddam House are situated in the beautiful suburb of Durbanville and guarantee a safe learning environment. Students are inspired to embrace their individuality, excel in their performance and reach their full potential.
We are proud of the well-rounded young adults that we send into tertiary fields. Our students are given thorough direction for decision-making, problem solving and are encouraged to hold their own on the world stage.
In 2018 several students from Reddam House attained the highest grades in the world in both Mathematics and English Language & Literature.
The qualification offered by Reddam House is an internationally recognised qualification, based on the the Cambridge International Assessment. From Grades 10 to 12 we offer the highly regarded Independent Examination Board (IEB) Curriculum. This gives our students the option of choosing between two world class curricula.
Each member of our highly qualified and caring staff has been hand-picked to embrace our holistic approach to education, which is based on the three pillars of Academics, Sport and Culture. Student are encouraged to implement the morals and values needed to build the society in which they hope to thrive.
We believe in achieving and promoting excellence. Each student is therefore motivated and encouraged to excel in all their areas of learning and engagement.

True excellence in education lies in striking a balance between creating a firm foundation for the future, by offering the best tuition and a broad bouquet of diverse opportunities, while simultaneously providing a launch pad to life: nurturing young intellects; challenging, channelling and focusing our students’ energy; and in the process, widening global horizons.

We wish only the very best for our students, working tirelessly to motivate them to maximise their innate potential.
Warmest welcome to the Reddam House family.
