Uplands Board of Directors

Since its inception in 1928, Uplands has striven to be the best school possible. The Preparatory school has quality and tradition in its DNA, and the College (established in 1998 to extend the Prep ethos to high school pupils) is imbued with progressive energy.

Uplands is now one school – a formidable entity comprising Prep and College, as well as a dynamic Pre-Preparatory school and the widely acclaimed Uplands Outreach – committed to pursuing new ideas, new possibilities, and new ways to become the very best it can be.

For me, Uplands is a special combination of nurturing the unique spirit of each child, honouring the history of the school, enhancing the quality of academics, and enjoying the wide range of activities on our picture-perfect campus. This magic can only occur when our children reach their potential, when our teachers and staff are motivated and engaged, our parents deeply involved in the campus community, and when the school stands on a solid financial foundation.

Uplands is filled with bright, articulate, diverse and well-mannered children who, in a nurturing environment, become self-confident and embrace change. As today’s thinking children, they will most certainly become tomorrow’s achievers.

Together, with the incredible support of the wider Uplands family, I have no doubt that we will achieve our audacious goal of becoming Africa’s best fully-integrated day and boarding school, where all pupils thrive!
