As with most independent schools in South Africa, our school fees don't cover the full cost of education. We do this to keep our school affordable to more families. The resulting deficit is met by fundraising and generous gifts from individuals, families and businesses. Thank you to our faithful supporters. You make the Ambleside opportunity possible!

New enviro-friendly landscape plan
We recently commissioned Square One Landscape Architects to come up with a development plan for the property to support the ethos of the school. They have presented a stunning landscape design! Ultimately the school will have outdoor play and adventure areas expressing four Cape Biomes - renosterveld, fynbos, wetland and forest. Our children will be surrounded by natural beauty to explore, observe and paint. A veggie garden and medicinal plants area, irrigated by harvesting our own rainwater will also be established. We will soon be raising funds for paving, trees, wooden structures, plants, seating and irrigation. If you would like to support this development please reference contributions - LANDSCAPE
The Vine School NPC currently has 19 families who receive partial financial support from the Bursary Fund. All recipients are assessed to ensure that there is a genuine financial need, and that they will make a positive contribution to the life of the school. By supporting the Educational Fund, donors assist disadvantaged children to realise their potential and be freed from the poverty trap. Please reference contributions - EDUCATIONALFUND
