OUR STORY

REDDFORD HOUSE IS AN INSPIRED SCHOOL

Founded by the Inspired team in 2015, the Reddford House schools have been an immediate success in South Africa, with the two first schools opening with over 600 students and the third Reddford School having enjoyed a successful opening in January 2016.

The Reddford model extends beyond the confines of traditional academia to tuition in life and communication skills, equipping students to meet life’s challenges in a globally competitive world.

World-renowned educator Graeme Crawford opened his first school in 1993. Within five years the Crawford Schools grew to a total of 21. In 2000, working closely with his sister Sheena Crawford- Kempster, Graeme founded Reddam House Constantia in Cape Town. In January 2001, Graeme opened the first school outside South Africa: Reddam House Sydney. Since 2003, the Reddam House brand has grown from strength to strength, with more schools opening in South Africa, United Kingdom and Australia. In 2014 Crawford established Reddford House schools.

In response to the successes of the founding schools and to meet the growing demand for premium schooling in South Africa, a second brand, Reddford House, was launched in 2014 - Reddford House The Hills in Pretoria and Reddford House Blue Hills in Beaulieu, Johannesburg.

The two schools were later joined by Reddford House Northcliff, which successfully opened its doors in 2016. The Reddford House brand continues to grow and impress, with further expansion planned for 2021.

Reddford House is proud to be a member of Inspired, a leading international group of premium schools educating 31,000 students on four continents.

Founded by Nadim M Nsouli, Inspired is designed to inspire students to achieve their maximum potential in a nurturing, progressive academic environment from ages 1 to 18. A definitive statement of excellence in private education. Inspired offers a fresh and contemporary approach to education by re-evaluating traditional teaching methods and curriculums, and creating a more dynamic, relevant and powerful model reflecting current attitudes.

Inspired schools nurture the unique individuality, talent and self-assurance of each student, equipping them to take on the world with the skills and confidence to ensure success. (www.inspirededu.co.uk)
