Case Studies

1. Richard Varha Secondary School, King Williams Town, Eastern Cape

Strengthening a school’s governance, operations and management is a key part of improving subject expertise and results. Through the Old Mutual Education Flagship Project, the principals, educators and pupils of Richard Varha Secondary School have worked closely with organisations such as SEED Educational Trust, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) and Columba Leadership to start producing improved maths and science results. The community has noticed these changes and now want their children to attend this successful school.

2. Ntemoseng High School, Botshabelo, Free State

Under the existing structure of the Schools Partnership Project initiated by the University of Free State (UFS) in 2011, the Old Mutual Education Flagship Project was able to extend the reach and scope of the project which focuses on mentoring for school teachers in key subjects. In Botshabelo, there are five participating schools who each have four specialist mentors in maths, science, accounting and importantly school management for principals and their management teams. The overall aim is to enable teachers to manage their classes and curriculum content more effectively. Ntemoseng High School is now the second best performing school in Botshabelo out of 14 schools.
