Tate School Structure

At Tate International School we believe that for children to have the optimal learning experience that caters to their individual needs, their exposure to teachers should be maximised. Our aim is 1 teacher per 12 students maximum, as we have found that this results in the most positive, supportive environment in which children learn.


Tate International School caters for children from age 2 years old through to Grade 12. Each of our schools are divided into five divisions, namely:

Each Division is a fully functional business unit with its own education and management teams which are administrated from our Head Office in Cape Town. We strive that each of our schools offer the full range of divisions, there are however circumstances where not all the divisions are available at the same premises.

Tate Group Structure

The Tate International School (Pty) Ltd group consists of a Head Office based in Cape Town and several other independently owned and operated affiliated schools. Each such affiliated school is independently licensed with the National Department of Education and each school is contractually obliged to comply with the Tate International School policies, Procedures, Curriculum, Ethos, Methodologies and every other management framework provided by Tate International School. Affiliated schools are Franchised Businesses and provides opportunity to its owners to experience the joy of teaching in an environment that provides protection, sound business infrastructure, technology platforms and a quality curriculum. With this strategy we are able to ensure that a child may migrate seamlessly from one Tate school to another in any of our provinces in South Africa.
