gen2Auburn House was founded in 1984 as a multi-cultural school for 3-6 year olds. In 1988 it opened its first full-time primary class and now caters for children from preschool to senior primary levels.

In 2001, an informal alliance was made with Cedar House, a thriving secondary school in Kenilworth which upholds similar values, and those pupils who move there have established a fine reputation for all-round ability and excellent achievemnt.

A close association has also been established with the School of Practical Philosophy, Cape Town, which supports and encourages Auburn House School’s aims, approach and activities. The resources and skills offered under their auspices have allowed Auburn House to make significant growth, expand facilities and enrich the curriculum.
