According to statistics published in 2019 on the website South African Market Insights, less than 2 000 independent schools in the country cater to just over 400 000 students. This means that the potential student base versus the availability of private schools is a situation of where demand far outstrips supply. Therefore, the South African private school market is deemed very lucrative over the next 6-8 years especially for new private schools offering superior services at competitive prices.

Service Description

The demand for private school education in South Africa far outstrips supply, and this is most prevalent in multiple provinces such as KZN, E&W Cape, Limpopo, Mpumulanga and the Gauteng Province, although there is a deemed national shortage of private schools. The millions of immigrants that cross our borders annually just adds to an already worsening problem in terms of national education capacity. The South African National Qualifications Framework and the flavour of South African Qualifications is of particular prestige to citizens on the African Continent. Hence the Gauteng Province is literally flooded with immigrants from upper Africa and this holds especially true for students wanting to study. A perusal of all the private schools confirm existing student registrations at maximum capacities and is usually accompanied by a waiting list of new applications for registration for the future enrolment period. Budding and savvy entrepreneurs wanting to make solid profits with a guaranteed business model should use this opportunity to make inroads into this sector before it becomes saturated.
