A BRIEF HISTORY
TLC CAPE TOWN
In 2010, The Leadership College Cape Town, opened its doors to 47 aspiring leaders in the impoverished community of Manenberg. Within the space of 5 years, the school grew from 47 Grade 8 learners to 627 Grade 8-12 learners. To date, TLC Cape Town has produced 160 Grade 12 graduates, while in the process, producing 144 subject distinctions. The school is registered as a no fee comprehensive independent school with the Western Cape Education Department.
TLC CAPE TOWN JUNIOR
Because TLC Cape Town is registered as a comprehensive Independent School, it was able to formally launch TLC Cape Town Junior in 2013 when public demand for a primary school grew within the Manenberg community. The school opened with 10 Grade R learners, and four years on, the school has grown to 166 Grade R-4 learners with the demand for enrollment being bigger than ever.
TLC HYDE PARK
The Leadership College Hyde Park was established in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town in January 2011. The vision of the school is to provide a low-cost quality education to the historically disadvantaged and impoverished community of Mitchells Plain. The school started with 10 learners and has steadily grown to the point where it currently serves a total of 693 learners (528 Primary School and 165 High School learners) ranging from Grade R to 11. As the demand for TLC Hyde Park grew, the school responded by officially launching the TLC Hyde Park High School in 2013.
TLC OBSERVATORY MATHS AND SCIENCES
SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
The TLC Observatory Maths and Sciences School for Girls is based in Observatory, Cape Town, where it shares the same building as the Cape Town Science Centre in Observatory; an ideal melting pot for the production of the next generation of South African female mathematicians and scientists. This school started with 25 Grade 8 female learners in 2014 and has since grown to 67 learners, 7 full time staff members, offering Grades 8 through to 10. This school is slowly but surely growing in popularity as it is the only lowcost Independent school in the area, with a strong focus on Maths and Sciences.
