Welridge Academy is an independent school registered with the Department of Education in South Africa.
We are conveniently situated in Roodepoort and have been playing an integral role in educating children within Weltevreden Park since September 2008. Our school is the brainchild of Andries and Veronica Nel who identified a gap between private and government schooling, making quality private education, with the highest of standards more affordable for the average income household. We are focused on providing an environment that inspires our learners to take an active role in their education and development of skills with the aim to contribute to the transformation of education in South Africa, acting in the interest of our society. Welridge Junior Academy accepts children from 12 Months to Grade 00 and Welridge Academy Primary school caters for children from Grade R to Grade 7.
We also offer a safe aftercare option that includes a cooked and nutritious lunch as well as supervised homework time. Our team of highly skilled educators headed by our principal Mrs Janine Loubser drives our school with their dedication and passion towards education in our country and community involvement. Mrs. Loubser is passionate about creating a true feel of family, which combined with a focus on academics as well as sport and cultural activities allows each individual child to reach their full potential.
