Internships in South Africa

Pridwin was founded in 1923 by Captain and Mrs Claude Janion, in Winkelspruit in KwaZulu-Natal. Captain Janion had served with the East Surrey Regiment during World War I and won the Distinguised Service Order at the Battle of the Somme. He chose the colours of his regiment for the Pridwin school tie.

Starting with only six pupils, the Janions ran Pridwin until 1931, increasing the school complement to 32 boys.

The school was named after King Arthur’s ship Prydwyn, and the legend of King Arthur is incorporated into many aspects of school life. The four school houses are named after Knights of the Round Table: Bedevere, Galahad, Lancelot and Tristram.

In 1934, Pridwin relocated to its present site in Melrose, Johannesburg. From 17 pupils in those early days, the school increased its number to 450 boys in 2016.

Pridwin Preparatory School is a leading boys’ prep school situated in Melrose in Johannesburg. It prepares boys for entry into the top high schools in the country. Many of our boys also gain entry into prominent high schools in other parts of the world.

  • Register for an appropriate part time teaching degree or PGCE
  • Seek to become a teacher in either the Foundation Phase
  • Be able to work successfully in a team
  • Be willing to contribute to the extra-mural programme of the school
