This is the founding school that gave birth to all other Basa Schools that exist now. It was initially established as a Remedial school for the community of Johannesburg CBD. It is now a household brand amongst independent schools in Johannesburg Central and South Districts. It was established in 1993 and is still an institution of choice for many parents and learners.

Our motto is Quality Makes the Difference, as we strongly believe in delivering quality education to all our learners. This ensures that they leave our school as well-rounded, confident individuals who are able to think and question things around them, enabling them to apply their education in real-life situations.

Qualities that we expect from our learners include diligence and self-discipline. The school offers tuition from Grade R to 12. Aftercare is provided up to 18H00 on Mondays to Fridays for primary school learners.

We have a primary school and a high school situated in Eloff Street adjacent to the Johannesburg Railway Park Station in Town. Many parents and visitors have praised BASA Tutorial for having a state-of-the-art school building that their children enjoy learning in.
