This school is registered with the Gauteng Department of Education as an Independent School offering classes in Grade R -7.

We follow a Public National Curriculum (CAPS) Policy as in all grades prescribed by the Department of Basic Education. Our medium of learning and teaching is English. Other languages are offered as additional Languages. At the moment our First Additional Language is only AFRIKAANS.

BASA is a Christian School and as such, all the activities are within the confines of the Christian laws and ordinances as well as the Laws of the Republic. We aim to foster moral growth in our learners as responsible citizens, law-abiding and knowing their duty and responsibility in the community at large. It is in this regard that learners of other faiths are advised to seek clarity on religious practices at the school, before enrolling to avoid inconveniences in the near future. It is our duty to make learners aware of God’s laws and ordinances of living and worship.

At BASA, every opportunity is used to develop children holistically. Through service and worship, the spirituality of learners is natured so that they learn respect, tolerance, and humility. Emphasis is also put on recognizing the right to learn as being one of the most important rights of learners.

BASA has also asserted itself as a sports giant not only at Cluster level or District but Provincial level as well. The Institution aims at the holistic development of our learners through sporting, social, moral, academic, and physical.

The establishment of low fee-paying schools in the townships was a response to the need to bring better quality education to the people. In all its activities as a school, BASA seeks to honour God, Honour others, honour self, honour the school, honour society and the environment at large.

BASA aims to whet the appetite for knowledge and encourage academic excellence in its endeavours as well as other extra-curricular activities and leave an indelible mark in the academic arena.
