Our History

Orel Private Academy was established by Mrs. Irma Fourie, a visionary, who realized that it was never enough to just complete syllabi and declare students ready for the world. Her vision of education as a world-changing force came out of this realization. Unless students were prepared to become better rounded individuals, education would have failed in its duty. Orel Private Academy was founded to create a center for quality all-round education.

We are a new private educational independent school in Kimberley, Northern Cape. We have started with  18 Grade 1 learners in 2016. W added grade 2 in 2017 and in 2018 we now have grade RR - grade 6. We hope to add grade 7 in 2019 in order to offer a fully comprehensive school from babies to grade 7.

Smiley Kids Kimberley merged with Orel Private Academy on 4 August 2017, to form one fully functional, well rounded school, offering your child the best education from the foundation phase up until the intermediate phase. 

If you are looking for a world-class education for your child in Kimberley, Orel Private Academy is perhaps one of the best places to look up. For details about our admission process and other details, please get in touch with us.
