Sunningdale

GS Sunningdale Open Morning Contact Form (#10)

Generation Schools Sunningdale was the first Generation Schools campus to open in January 2016. This campus, being our flagship campus, welcomed students ranging from the age of 18 months to 12 years of age. We filled our classrooms with eager students and enthusiastic educators and can proudly say we had an eventful and successful first year.

In January 2017, we opened our Middle School Phase, where our students moved into their new Middle School building. In January 2019, we welcomed our High School. In 2020, owing to the growing numbers of this campus, a new campus for the Middle and High School students was built just down the road (Generation Sandown Institute). Now, the Sunningdale campus caters for ages from 18 months to 12 years only and has recently introduced its very own library.

We promised change. We promised innovation. We have achieved so much. But this is only the beginning. Watch this space, more is coming…

Brigitte Wiltshire

Head of Sunningdale

Brigitte has had the privilege of teaching at both government (CAPS) and private (Cambridge) affiliated schools.

While completing her Bachelor of Education Degree, she worked part-time at a reading school and found her passion for inspiring children by using individual learning programmes.

Brigitte was first introduced to Cambridge education when she moved to Durbanville soon after getting married. During this time she had the opportunity to head many portfolios within a school and teach various grades.

When joining Generation Schools, she found the opportunity of a lifetime. The rapid growth within the field of education was something that excited Brigitte and it is her goal to combine her range of experience with her ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic and motivated leader to make a positive contribution to this incredible school that she now calls home.
