Kgaswe School is an independent, co-educational, primary and secondary school located in Palapye, Botswana. Founded in 1986, the school caters students not only located in Palapye, but also for students based in neighbouring towns Serowe and Mahalapye. The school is a member of the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa.

Overview[edit]

Founded in 1986, it has grown from an initial class of five students and one teacher, based in a garage, to nearly 600 today.[1] The school is well represented by a diverse range of nationalities, with over half of the students are Batswana, but many more countries are represented, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The school has two main campuses, one located near the Morupule Power Station, which holds the pre-school and primary school students. The second is located within the town of Palapye, next to the magistrate's court, which caters the high school students. This one is the newer of the sites, which opened in 2010. Both sites are equipped with multiple classroom blocks and science and computer labs. The primary school campus also offers a sports and athletics field, 25-metre swimming pool, softball diamonds, netball and tennis courts and a library. The high school is set to offer the sports services in the near future.[citation needed]

The high school opened in 2006, with its first students sitting their exams in 2009. As of 2010, the Kgaswe school campus moved away from the main school (near the Morupule Power Station) and into a new campus located within the town, next to the Magistrate's Court.[citation needed]

All subjects offered are strictly following the guidelines set by Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education. The course takes two years to complete (Form 3 and Form 4), with the foundation set in Form 1 and 2. The first set of students took part for these exams in October and November 2009.

In 2010, Kgaswe opened its doors for the first time for students taking A-Levels.
