Welcome to Oakhill School

Where learning is a joy


We are an independent, co-educational day school offering a holistic education that nurtures the individual...

Oakhill School is a happy, vibrant and dynamic place for learning that caters for students from Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, from Grade 000 to Grade 12. Oakhill seeks to provide a broad, balanced education that is modern and relevant to our times and integrates the academic, cultural, social, physical and spiritual components necessary for a young person’s development.

If you’re looking for an environment where children flourish in a space that celebrates diversity, rewards creativity, embraces discipline and produces academic excellence, then Oakhill is your school! Oakhill has an outstanding academic record, with a 100% pass rate in the IEB examination since inception, as well as a fine reputation in sports, music, art and drama.


Learning... thinking... enjoying… for life!

Whole child education happens in the broadest sense of the word at Oakhill and this involves much more than the excellent academic standards we maintain. From Grade 000 to Grade 12 we strive to ignite the imaginations of our pupils by encouraging them to explore and discover, question and create – to experience the joy of learning. It is a unique journey for each child towards developing identity and reaching their potential. We believe that every child has the ability to learn but not necessarily in the same way as another.

Still true to the vision of the 1992 founding members, Oakhill sends young people out into the world who are well-rounded citizens with both life skills and the skills for life. They graduate as difference makers in a future world holding exponential change, massive challenges and unlimited opportunity. 


Every child deserves the best possible start in life, with opportunities to imagine, explore and discover in beautiful and inspiring environments. This is what we offer in our early years educational programme at LIttle Oaks. 


Oakhill Prep firmly establishes the basics and then extends each child's ability in order to reach their full potential. It provides the opportunity for exploration and growth, challenging pupils to think critically and creatively.


Oakhill College has enjoyed tremendous success as a beacon of academic excellence. The caring and supportive environment stimulates and inspires students to achieve their potential and realise their goals.
