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.

A close association was established with the School of Practical Philosophy, Cape Town, which supported and encouraged Auburn House School’s aims, approach and activities. The resources and skills which was offered under their auspices allowed Auburn House to grow significantly, expanded the facilities and enriched the curriculum.
