The Haven Academy

Over the past 19 years the Haven of Rest School has been striving towards Academic excellence through Christian Education. The Haven Academy (re-branded) which is in it’s 3rd year of existence is proud to be one of the first private schools in this region that promotes a unique culture that is Christian, multiracial and ethnically diverse. We pride ourselves on the character development of young individual’s and catering for the specific needs of learners’ which include the implementation of innovative ways to impart knowledge.

In 2019, The Haven Academy became one of only two Schools in the country that offered the IEB Online curriculum for the FET Phase and this has been on a trial basis for one year.


The School currently runs from Grade R to Grade 7 and offers the CAPS Curriculum to it’s learners.

We boast a 100% Matric pass rate for the past two years consecutively.

Our Goal for 2020 and beyond is to grow our school numbers above our current roll of 150 learners. We aim to cater for the demand in the community of Tongaat and surrounding areas.


Our future plans include, the introduction of a variety of Sport, arts and music among other extra mural activities.

Fundraising is a part of our current model as this will enable us to improve on the infrastructure and complete the approved plans for our Sporting Facilities, Community Hall, Administrative Wing and Boarding facilities.


On behalf of the management of the Haven or Rest, we would like to commend our outgoing Principal Mr Richard Lennox, our current Principal Mr Alvy Murray, all Academic, Administrative and Support Staff for their sterling effort towards the provision of quality Education to our learners. Our sincere gratitude goes to the visionary of our school Pastor Ronnie Naidoo for his perseverance and dedication towards Christian education.
