Intern-Teacher Training Programme


St Stithians College is a proudly South African school, embracing diversity and offering a distinctive educational experience. Founded as a Methodist Church School, our Christian spirituality is central to our identity. Our College consists of primary and secondary boys’ and girls’ schools, together with a co-educational junior primary school.

We are an independent, non-profit institution located on an expansive green campus in Sandton, Johannesburg. In addition, St Stithians incorporates Kamoka Bush School near Modimolle, and the Thandulwazi Maths & Science Academy on our Campus. As a College, we are intent on Inspiring Excellence and Making a World of Difference.


The Thandulwazi Maths and Science Academy was established in 2005, a pioneering initiative of St Stithians College to provide educational growth opportunities for students and teachers based in public schools in greater Johannesburg.

The focus on Maths and Science provides the opportunity to make a significant contribution in the public education sector and in scarce skills development. It is necessary to ensure a clear flow from the work buckets so that there is continuous improvement in the execution of the expected deliverables for the Academy, as identified in our goals and objectives.

The Academy’s activities are hosted at and supported by St Stithians, and funding is provided predominantly through corporate CSI contributions and private donations. This is a shining private-public partnership model and St Stithians is proud to call the Thandulwazi Academy one of its eight schools
