Since its inception in 1968 Rand Tutorial College has provided education to thousands of boys and girls.

Rand Tutorial College recognizes the problems and needs within education in South Africa today. We aim to address these for a small group of students to ensure that their potential is realized and that they are prepared for and take their place in society.

Rand Tutorial College is a progressive, open private school committed to excellence in education. We aim to provide this by:

- smaller classes
- creating a safe and happy learning environment
- fostering values of caring and mutual respect
- providing dedicated & qualified staff


RTC is blessed with an extremely well qualified, dedicated academic staff representative of many cultures and creeds. This multicultural staffing complement ensures that the School can cope adequately with local learners and those from abroad.

The successes the School has in the past achieved in assimilating non-mother tongue learners into its academic programme bears testimony to the ability of the academic staff to care for the needs of each and every learner.


A recent development is the paving out of our playgrounds to accommodate sports such as netball, volleyball, basketball and the development of a mini court that can be utilised for mini hockey, mini soccer, mini tennis and the other aforementioned sports in their mini forms.

Being an inner city school with limited free space for sport, the school aims to make maximum use of these areas to encourage as much sporting activity as it can on the school campus.


Learners have ample choice between cultural and sporting activities and all activities are geared towards ultimately participating at the highest possible level without losing sight of the value of exposure of every learner to as many activities as possible – the principal of winning at all costs is not part of our philosophy.

Our philosophy espouses the principle of maximum participation at all costs.

RTC strives to develop the rich potential of every one of its diverse multicultural complement of learners by instilling the moral, social and academic skills and knowledge required for a life of service, leadership and personal fulfilment.

The spirit of inclusivity ensures that a wide spectrum of learners from grade R to grade 12 is catered for holistically in the school’s efforts to inculcate excellence in academic achievement, independence of thought, respect for all, responsibility and creativity which characteristics should epitomise the useful and valuable citizen the school wishes to produce.

RTC regards itself as a gateway for learners in becoming competitive, valuable and dynamic global citizens.
