About Us

Ambleside School of Hout Bay is one of a growing family of schools that originated in the United States and has since spread as far as South Africa and Switzerland.


Although an independent, private school, we are registered with the Western Cape Education Department and the Independent Examination Board (IEB). Offering tuition from pre-school right through to Grade 12, Ambleside is built upon a strong Christian foundation that underpins our curriculum and ethos. Although uncompromising in our beliefs, students of all faith backgrounds are welcome.
