Welcome to the University Pre-Primary a happy little community pre-primary school in a beautiful Victorian house in the Rondebosch area, Cape Town.

Welcome to UPPThe school was established in 1972 by lecturers at UCT in the hope that the university would fund the school for their children, but that didn’t happen and the Education Department took it on. A few years later the school moved to its present premises near Rondebosch Common in Rosebank, where it continues as an independent pre-primary school with a government subsidy.

Our school caters for two classes: Pre Grade R for 4-5 year olds and a Younger Class for 3-4 year olds. We are proud to have turned out many high achievers and prefects.   We are happy to all work as a close team, and parents and children make friendships that last for years.
