“Aligned to the Inspired and Reddam House philosophy, my experience in education has made me passionate about developing a holistic model, with a clear balance between sport, culture and academics. I look forward to being a part of this exciting new school where we will recognise, nurture and grow the unique contributions, talents and potential of every child,” says Catherine. 

We look forward to seeing Reddam House Ballito flourish under Catherine’s leadership, as a part of the Reddam House group that continues to set new standards in international academic excellence.
