Cecilia Rd Ashlea Gardens
Today New Hope School has 410 learners receiving education ranging from preschool to matric, also vocational and life skills. These are learners from diverse cultural backgrounds, each with a disability such as cerebral palsy, physical disability, traumatic head injury or specific learning disability.

The learners can make use of the school’s transport system in residential areas in and around Pretoria and Centurion. The school also has hostel facilities for learners not residing in Pretoria. After Care Facilities are offered to learners whose parents are able to fetch them only after work.

Educators, psychologists, counselors, physio -, occupational- and speech therapists, class room facilitators and general assistants all from part of the team to help each learner to overcome their specific learning barriers. The school also has a full time nursing sister and social worker.

New Hope School is unique in offering three Curricular Streams in order to afford each learner the opportunity to develop optimally. Besides the academic main stream curriculum offering NCS, the school also has a Vocational Skills and a Life Skills Phase. Our learners can attain a mainstream qualification as in any other public school, although with a limited scope of learning areas in FET (Gr. 10 – 12). The focus of the Vocational Skills Phase is entrepreneurship and practical work related skills. Life Skills Phase learners are supported to function independently and to develop appropriate social skills. These two phases host a Tea Garden on most Fridays during the school term from 10 :00 to 12:00. Learners are involved in the preparation of the food, the setting of the table and waiter – all work related skills as part of the school-to-work program offered by the school.
