Subjects

We offer a wide range of subject options, allowing each learner to flourish.

Stanford Lake College offers a variety of subjects within the IEB framework. Our school syllabus is structured in such a way as to allow young learners in Grades 8 and 9 to develop necessary thinking and learning skills to lay the foundation for the FET programme of Grades 10, 11 and 12.

Our staff are specialists within their subject and field and are up to date with developments within each subject framework. With a teacher to pupil ratio of 1:9, each learner is given the individual attention needed for success in all subjects and fields. Learners are given guidance and advice with their subject choices in Grade 10, allowing each individual to meet their full potential.

Subject Choices

In Grades 8 and 9 all subjects are compulsory. It is only in the FET phase (Grades 10-12) that learners make subject choices to align with their tertiary education goals.

*These subjects are compulsory subjects for students in the FET phase (Grades 10 - 12). Students have a choice between Mathematics and Maths Literacy. Each pupil must then choose a further three subjects for matric.

The dad Centre

"dream an' do"

The dad centre (“dream an' do”) is utterly unique. Here, we combine outdoor education and academic subjects to develop SMART graduates, pupils who are Solution finders, Meaningful relationship builders, Astute financial planners, Ready to risk, and capable of Talking to others. They have to have skills that go beyond the ordinary and outside the classroom.  It allows the pupils to dream and do; to realise their potential and act upon it. The programme is focused within the Round Square Development Framework.

dream an' do lessons are timetabled into the academic calendar for students in Grade 8 and 9.
