A word from the director

Graeme Crawford, a renowned South African educator, opened his first school in 1993. In the following five years, the Crawford Schools grew to 21 in total. In 2000, working closely with his sister Sheena Crawford-Kempster, Graeme founded Reddam House Constantia in Cape Town. In January 2001, Graeme opened the first school outside South Africa: Reddam House Sydney. Both Atlantic Sea Board, Cape Town and Bedfordview started in 2003. A newly constructed Reddam House Waterfall opened its doors in 2012 in a residential property development on the outskirts of Johannesburg. A second brand Reddford House The Hills and Reddford House Blue Hills, launched in 2014, will offer students a wide selection of choices. Reddam House has since branched out to the UK, acquiring Bearwood College and Fulham Preparatory School as the latest addition to the Reddam House family. The group, currently, boasts 26 schools.
