SPARK Schools is a network of independent schools offering affordable, globally competitive education.
Appalled by the state of South African education and committed to finding a solution, Stacey Brewer and Ryan Harrison co-founded SPARK Schools in 2012. They believed that an innovative approach could disrupt the crisis in South African education and dedicated themselves to creating a new model that would provide access to high quality education for all.
SPARK Ferndale, the first school in the SPARK Schools network, opened in 2013 in Johannesburg. Since then, the network has expanded to serve more than 6,000 SPARK scholars at 15 schools in Gauteng and the Western Cape. We’re committed to opening new schools across the country every year, because we believe that South African parents and children deserve access to excellent education at an affordable price.
