At Hermannsburg, children can start their formal education in the Grade 1 year and proceed to matriculate at the end of Grade 12 without the disruption of changing schools and the associated changes in friends, ethos and circumstance. The small classes ensure individual attention and the opportunity to meet each child at his or her level.

From Grade 1 to Grade 7, the learners are taught the discipline required to achieve consistently good results in the formal arena. Great emphasis is laid on the basic foundations of learning - the ability to read and write, interpret and manipulate information and numeracy skills. A highly competent teaching staff educate the children in both English and German, according to the desires of the parents and the facilities available at the school.
