Durbanville, July 17, 2018 – Inspired, a leading co-educational, non-denominational, and independent school group, is delighted to announce the appointment of the new Headmistress of Reddam House Durbanville Preparatory School. Cathy Fourie joins us with invaluable Preparatory School experience and we look forward to her weaving her knowledge seamlessly into the fabric of our school.

Cathy completed an Honours in Educational Management (Cum Laude), and her deep interest in children and how they learn, inspired her to obtain a remedial qualification which benefitted her approach to education tremendously. Beginning her career as a High School English Teacher, she moved to Preparatory School tuition, dedicating almost two, dynamic decades to private school education.

Previously employed at Parklands College as Grade Head in both Grade 4 and Grade 5, Cathy was later appointed Head of the Intermediate Phase Department. In 2010, as Head of Oakley House School, she pioneered the development of specialised curriculum programmes and individual development plans.

Cathy is passionate about finding the most effective study and learning methods to ensure her Preparatory School children receive the best educational foundation available. Cathy’s extensive research and thorough observation of education systems, children, and international and local school systems, make her a unique asset to any institution and align her perfectly with the Reddam House educational philosophy and culture.

“We believe true excellence in education can best be achieved by a dynamic, professional, educational leader pursuing the best teaching methods available – heading up a powerful, passionate team of exceptional teachers and managers – and preparing young, happy and motivated students to stand tall and make their mark anywhere in the world as global citizens of tomorrow. We genuinely look forward to seeing Reddam House Durbanville Preparatory School flourish under the leadership of Cathy Fourie," says Mrs Crawford-Kempster, Managing Director of Reddam House Schools Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.

We warmly welcome our new Headmistress to the Reddam House group, as we work together to nurture individuality, talent and self-assurance in a secure, relaxed, self-disciplined environment.

Join our Reddam House South Africa rising stars at Reddam House Atlantic Seaboard, Constantia, Durbanville and Somerset in the Western Cape; Reddam House Waterfall, Bedfordview and Helderfontein in Gauteng; Reddam House Umhlanga and Ballito (opening 2019) in KwaZulu-Natal.
