The DSP will prepare your child for the globalised world and will open doors to studies in South Africa, Germany and other countries.

English first language
Afrikaans first additional language
German second additional language
Mathematics (including enrichment and better achievement possibilities)

Highly qualified South African teachers guarantee excellent results based on modern teaching methods. Subject teachers lay the foundation for the development of new languages, natural and social sciences.


Sport, Arts and Culture are compulsory subjects for grade 8 and 9 and are vitally important to our holistic approach.


Our extensive extra-curricular programme supports the development of our young people and give them room for improvement.


The computer centres are well equipped for compulsory and optional computer lessons. Learners have access to the internet and can work in the computer centres in the afternoons under supervision.


Literature and information are available in our Resource Centre in 4 different languages. There are also various board games and films as well as computer stations with internet available. A full-time librarian is responsible for the smooth running of the centre.


Well-equipped Laboratories for physics, chemistry and biology enhance the teaching of the natural and physical sciences.


The Music centre consists of two classrooms and three practice rooms. The larger room can be converted into an open-air stage for performances by the choirs, orchestra and big band of the DSP.


Art teachers encourage creativity and exploration in the hands-on activities in the Art centre. The works of art are exhibited on the school’s premises.
