Tradition Meets Innovation

A well-structured curriculum and extensive opportunities await your child at McAuley House.


Welcome to McAuley House Primary School


McAuley House School is situated in the charming suburb of Parktown West, Johannesburg. The Primary school accommodates both boys and girls from Grade R to Grade 7.


At McAuley House, we take great pride in providing a premier education that celebrates academic excellence and nurtures a deep sense of achievement in our students. In addition to our diverse sports and cultural activities, we incorporate Robotics into the Foundation phase and introduce coding and CAD in the Senior Primary phase. These initiatives, along with our Mathematics and Reading programs, empower our students to thrive and reach their full potential.


Our Foundation phase students are privileged to have their own dedicated classrooms and play areas for Grades R & 1 and Grades 2 & 3, while remaining integrated with the rest of the school. Foundation Phase aims to lay firm foundations in reading, writing and numeracy skills while having lots of fun at the same time.


Committed to upholding Christian values, McAuley House fosters a nurturing community where we journey together as children of God. Our Mercy Catholic Ethos, inspired by the teachings of our Founder, Catherine McAuley, infuses every aspect of our daily life. Weekly masses in our chapel and moments of prayer and praise throughout the day offer spiritual nourishment for both students and staff.


We warmly invite you to visit our campus, experience the essence of our school, and meet our dedicated teachers.
