LADDSWORTH Primary School, founded in 1903, offers value-driven, quality education to its community. It is set in the heart of Hilton, catering for boys and girls from Grade 1 to Grade 7. The pupils study and play in a bright, vibrant and happy environment in tranquil and healthy country surroundings.

Laddsworth actively promotes the following values: loyalty, honesty, self-discipline, sincerity, courage, and respect.

Laddsworth Primary School is growing to serve the education needs of Hilton and surrounds. This will afford more children the opportunity to have the value-driven, quality education our fantastic school has to offer.

Laddsworth is proud to have committed staff with many years of experience in educating boys and girls.

The foundation of formal education begins at Laddsworth and gives children an excellent grounding for high school and life beyond.

The buildings, facilities and grounds are continually being upgraded to ensure that the school is able to keep pace with the growing demands of first-class education.

Laddsworth follows the CAPS syllabus but, in addition, we offer the following specialist subjects, including media studies, music, physical education, and computer studies.

Classroom learning is extended through field trips and educational outings. Each grade goes on various outings during the course of the year — these hands-on learning experiences are carefully planned as part of the curriculum.

The school achieves very good academic results every year, and Laddsworth pupils are well prepared to be accepted at their first choice of local high schools.

Pupils at Laddsworth enjoy a wide variety of sporting and cultural activities in which all children participate. These include: athletics, basketball, chess, choir, cricket, cross country, environmental club, hockey, netball, rugby, soccer, swimming and tennis. Many of the pupils achieve Midlands, KwaZulu-Natal and South African representation in their various sporting and cultural disciplines.

Laddsworth enthusiastically celebrates the wonderful achievements that the pupils earn both on and off the sports fields, always encouraging them to strive to honour the school motto: “Aim High”. — Supplied.
