Primary School

We believe there is no limit to what your child can achieve. We ignite your child’s curiosity and tell them to reach for their dreams, to step outside their comfort zones.

Visitors are always well received in our reception

Boarding school life

Earlybird boarding is regarded as an integral part of the School as it provides accommodation and therefore the opportunity for learners to experience the specific advantages that Earlybird Primary Day & Boarding school provides. The Boarding is in a modern complex, more like a hotel facility than a boarding school, and is our pride and joy.

The boarding accommodates both girls and boys boarders( Each have their separate wing). Every cubicle houses 4 learners and there are six washrooms on each floor with a solar shower system that provides hot shower.

Every cubicle has inbuilt drawers in which learners store their personal effects.

For boarders, the Boarding is a home-away-from-home that seeks to assist them to achieve peace of mind and to provide them with an opportunity to develop socially in the company of other learners of similar ages. There are also opportunities to develop sporting and cultural skills and to achieve a high level of each learners’ desire. For information on boarding, kindly get in touch with us and we can give you a tour.
