Welcome to Crawford Preparatory La Lucia
Welcome to Crawford Preparatory La Lucia – a co-ed school set on the hillside in the northern suburbs of Durban. With stunning views of the Indian Ocean, our campus boasts modern facilities – classrooms equipped to provide top class academic stimulation and to inspire pupils to achieve great heights in sporting and cultural activities.
For any parent, choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision and a decision that all parents hope to get right. All that any parent really wants, more than anything, is for their child to be happy. At Crawford we are committed to offering the highest quality education for our children. Education at our school is not only about ensuring that our curriculum is stimulating, challenging and relevant but it is also about ensuring that we develop our pupils’ self-belief, that our pupils are cared for, that they are recognised as unique individuals and that they have a sense of belonging.
We are blessed to have wonderful teachers at our school who create magic for each child in the classroom, every day. Committed and caring, they make learning interesting, fun and meaningful. Our teachers know that every child is a masterpiece and they work exceptionally hard to help each child to become the best that they can be.
For us as educators, thinking about how we teach and the way in which we ask questions has never been more important than now. We live in a world that is changing so rapidly and in a way, we are educating for the unknown. As part of our curriculum, we focus on important 21st century skills that are required in our complex and dynamic world.
