Cape Town - A school specialising in maths and science will open in Claremont in the Western Cape next year, the province's MEC for education, Donald Grant said on Monday.

"The school will provide world-class education, especially in maths and science to learners from a diversity of backgrounds," Grant said in a statement.

The school, which will be the third Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) facility in the province, will be located at the newly renovated premises of the former Teacher's Centre.

"The new school will service the needs of learners from a very broad catchment area. It is ideally situated for this purpose because of its proximity to rail and motor transport and has excellent teaching facilities."

Grant said the education department had entered into a governance and management arrangement with Westerford High School, one of the leading public schools in the country, to assist the new school.

This would ensure that appropriate standards are met from the outset and enable Claremont High School to take in both Grade 8 and 10 pupils for 2011.

"Opportunities for exchange of management, planning, teaching and curriculum expertise will be maximised and the new school should benefit immeasurably from the best practices of an established and widely recognised successful public school," Grant said.

The school will open its doors in January.
