Laerskool Kruinsig is ideally-located on a large campus with top facilities in Glen Marais, Kempton Park. Situated near to the Gautrain stop, as well as near the main arterial roads that lead to the R21, the position of Laerskool Kruinsig is conveniently central. The neighbourhood consists mainly of townhouse complexes and residential homes, taking learners out of the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy the relative calm of the suburbs.

The school grounds boast top facilities for learners to make the most of their schooling. This includes spacious classrooms and an administrative block, a pre-primary school, aftercare centre, sound studio, computer centre and two lapas.

These fine facilities are but one facet of the offerings at Laerskool Kruinsig, and enhances the learning experience of every child. Central to the daily working of the school is the child-centred ethos that embraces the fact that children are our future. This Afrikaans-medium school is shrouded in tradition - upon a foundation of Christian and Afrikaans culture that is inherent in the running of the school.

This is achieved through the use of technology and sound management practices, as well as incorporating the expertise of parents and members of the community to enhance these offerings. Sixty-five staff members are geared towards the attainment of every learner’s full potential.

This sense of personal achievement applies in the classroom, as well as in the extra-mural activities on offer at Laerskool Kruinsig.

With a Junior Olympic Gold Medalist and record holder, Davis Cup tennis player, national and provincial rugby player and a Protea netball player amongst the school’s alumni, it is evident that the standard of coaching is extremely high. This can also be seen by the vast number of high achievers in a number of sporting and cultural activities at the junior level.

In keeping with the Christian ethos of the school, Laerskool Kruinsig provides assistance in a variety of forms. Within the school walls and on a daily basis, the school has an on-site Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist and Educational Psychologist to aid any learners who are experiencing difficulties and to help them overcome these problems.
