Welcome to


SAHETI School was established in 1974 by a group of founders under the leadership of Advocate George Bizos. Its doors were open to all, welcoming widely diverse communities to share in its values-driven, universal education.

The campus has evolved as part of a unique design, which has attracted much attention and even professional recognition in the form of awards from the Institute of South African Architects. From the outset, SAHETI’s approach to education was dynamic and innovative. The school has become known for its enlightened teaching methods, consistent academic excellence and rich cultural life.

The expansive grounds have allowed for development of enviable sports facilities, to cater for a wide variety of activities. Today this vibrant school ranks amongst the top independent schools in South Africa. Its enrolment of about 1300 boys and girls is spread over a Playschool, Pre-Primary School, Primary School and High School.

SAHETI is situated in Senderwood, Bedfordview, on the eastern outskirts of Johannesburg.


"Know Thyself"

Exploring our school motto

“The school motto, ‘Know Thyself’ dates back to ancient Greece and was expounded upon by the likes of Socrates. For me it speaks to the need for self-reflection, through which we will begin to understand our need for God and our dependence on each other. I believe that a good understanding of self will also spur us on as individuals towards training our bodies, mind and character so that we may maximise our God given potential and fulfil the calling upon our lives.”
Mr Warwick Taylor (Former Executive Headmaster 2014-2022)

The Grade 7s recently immersed themselves in two days of CSI fun, carrying out investigations, solving clues and identifying suspects. This innovative learning activity linked fingerprints, their DNA knowledge and clues to solve the mystery. #SAHETISchool #SAHETI50 #SAHETIGrade7s #youngscientists #learningisfun
Earlier this year, SAHETI’s Grade 7 pupils took part in MATCH (Measuring Ability and Thinking Competencies for High School) – an external assessment process designed and administered by the IEB. This assessment consisted of two papers written on the same day, focusing on higher order thinking skills across multiple disciplines and language and mathematical knowledge.

Our pupils achieved 11 gold, 6 silver and 22 bronze awards, as well as numerous certificates of distinction for being placed in the top 3% nationally. These are the best results achieved to date. We are so proud of you all!

Certificate of distinction recipients: Joäo Carapinha, Marina Kyriacou, Dominic Sampaio De Sousa, Maria Missaikos, Sonali Malgas, Agis Stavrinos, Marianna Tappous, Angelique Triandafillou, Richard Zhang. #SAHETISchool #SAHETI50 #KnowThyself
