We encourage all parents, carers and guardians to bring the children in on time to start the school day and pick them up promptly. There is a charge of K30 for late pick-up.

All parents will be asked to submit the names and details of people who will be picking up children from Dayspring. If there is to be a change from the usual adult picking up your child from school, please let us know in advance.

All adults entering the school during the school day will be required to provide their name and details in the log book to guarantee our and your children’s safety.

We thank you for your co-operation in this.


Why Dayspring?

Dayspring Academy is a school where the pupils come first. We provide a Christian education with strong pastoral care, teach English and Maths to UK standards with UK teachers, and guarantee small class sizes. Our fees are competitive – K2300 per term for primary and K2000 per term for pre-school – and we provide excellent facilities and resources. Why not pop in and meet the team today?

Our curriculum

Beginning in the Pre-school and continuing into the early grades of Primary, the curriculum focuses strongly on numeracy and literacy to build the foundation for all future learning.
