Situated in Midrand
We are a Christian based, independent, Primary School that is situated in Midrand, Gauteng

Jubilate was started jointly by the local Anglican, Lutheran, AFM and NG churches in Midrand in January 1999. These churches felt that there was a definite need for an affordably priced independent Christian school in Midrand, which is aimed at the middle income group. The school is based firmly on Christian principles. We accept learners from all population groups and also from all religious affiliations.
A small school with small classes (with an average of 24 learners per class)
It is our intention to increase the numbers in the school each year until we reach a maximum of 300 learners. We aim to remain small enough so that we can give each learner in our school the necessary individual attention that a developing child requires.
A wide spectrum of subjects which include :- Mathematics ; English first language ; Afrikaans second language ; Natural Science ; Social Science ; Technology ; Economic Management Science ; Life Orientation ; Art / Craft ; Bible education ; Library
Christian Activities include Regular Assemblies with a Bible reading, prayer and hymn singing. All teaching is done from a Christian perspective. Bible lessons are compulsory and Scripture Union is optional.
