Our goal is to develop responsible, independent and empathetic individuals who will make a positive contribution to society. At HeronBridge College, our high school provides an education of the highest quality. Our dynamic and holistic approach to teaching ensures that learners are prepared for the future, and equipped to successfully navigate their everyday lives.
At HeronBridge College we assist our young people to grow into well-rounded, happy and wholesome adults. Our excellent academic programme is supported by an intentional focus on social and emotional learning (SEL) for the development of the ‘whole child.’
SEL teaches into social awareness, self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills and responsible decision-making, and has been proven to positively improve academic scores, enhance performance and grow collaboration, critical thinking and innovation among students.
Our enhanced curriculum prepares learners for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12 – and our academic results speak for themselves. Learners further benefit from specialised subjects such as Engineering and Graphic Design, AP Maths, AP English and having isiZulu as an additional language option.

HeronBridge College is situated in Fourways along the Jukskei river. The campus is divided into two parts: a school side and a sports side, providing ample space and excellent resources for everyday school activities and specialised sports and culture programmes.
The school plays host to a fantastic array of sports facilities including an Astro field, a flood-lit rugby field, nine netball and tennis courts, multiple soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts, a mountain-biking route, climbing wall, heated pool and high-performance centre. Seattle Coffee Company also has a coffee shop and mobile station on site.
We have a large indoor auditorium that seats over 600 people and provides a full service sound desk and lighting array for theatre productions, assemblies and other events, as well as a smaller auditorium in the college for more intimate performances. Additional facilities include a number of music rooms on campus, a robotics lab, lecture theatres, specialist classrooms, and more.
Our boarding school provides a safe and comfortable home away from home for boys in Grades 8 to 10 from January 2023.
With a maximum of two boarders per room, our rooms are designed to create a sense of comfort, security, and privacy, with three live-in staff allocated as House Parents and Tutors.
Our lounge includes DSTV, Xbox consoles, and comfortable bean bags, and we have a gymnasium, heated swimming pool, and bonfire boma. Furthermore, we encourage good physical and spiritual health with early-morning gym and devotion times, while learners receive three healthy, balanced meals a day.
Chaplaincy and Outreach
HeronBridge College, founded on strong Christian principles, seeks to encourage and influence individuals, both children and adults, towards a personal and living relationship with Jesus Christ, and to facilitate growth and wholeness in all areas of life.
As a school founded on Christian principles, our outreach and chaplaincy department gives a fuller expression to the vision and mission of the school. This is seen in direct ministry, outreach, mission trips, Bridge of Hope (our on-site community store), and bringing thought leadership and Biblical thinking and teaching to the school.
Ministry is done in classrooms and on the playground, and Bible for Life and World View studies are facilitated in the prep and college, respectively. Outreach is offered both as a co-curricular but also as an initiative that runs as a thread throughout the school.
HeronBridge is well recognised in our neighbouring communities, Diepsloot, Cosmo, Lion Park, and Zandspruit and has been serving these communities for 14 years with initiatives such as teacher training, school makeovers, food security through Rise Against Hunger, and the LEGO foundation.
In 2021 we launched our very own on-site community store, Bridge of Hope, which seeks to support and love our HBC staff and direct community through the provision of select food items, toiletries, clothing, and household items.
Our school transport service offers several morning and afternoon routes for learners from Grades 1 to 12. An additional shuttle for pre-prep children runs to and from the Broadacres area and is supervised by a pre-prep staff member. This service is available at an additional cost, as stated on our fees letter.
Our most popular pick-up points include Bryandale, Douglasdale, Radiokop, North Riding, Jukskei Park, Sunninghill, Craigavon, Cosmo City, Fourways Gardens, Lonehill, Cedar Lakes, Broadacres, Dainfern, Copperleaf, Centurion and Lanseria.
