The Auditorium was built in 2001 and was officially opened on 9 December 2001, by Frank Retief, the then presiding Bishop of the Church of England in South Africa.
The auditorium seats 800 people and is a wonderful venue. The stage floor has a sprung floor – which makes dancing on the stage very special. The acoustics are fantastic, and the lighting is of a high quality.
There is a state of the art sound system.
These features are more than suitable for all major dramatic productions being hosted.
The auditorium is used by the school for assemblies, conferences, drama productions and musical performances.
The MPH is a very useful, and well used, venue. It is air-conditioned and provides cool temperatures in summer, and warmth in winter. It is truly a multi-purpose environment. It is used for parent meetings, small school productions, speech evenings, assemblies and indoor physical education lessons.
The Prep School Aftercare is also run from this venue.
The school has two, staff finger print access, fully secured swimming pools. One is a heated indoor pool and gym; and the other is a half Olympic size outdoor pool.
On 12 February 2017, we received a phone call informing us that Mr Gavin Theron, the Deputy Principal in the Prep School, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at home. He was 33 years old. This was a very sad time for the school. Mr Theron was greatly respected and loved.
The school decided that something needed to be done in honour of Mr Theron.
On 12 February 2018, we revealed that the bottom sports field, where Mr Theron did most of his coaching (cricket, rugby and athletics) would be called the Theron Field. His parents, sisters, fiancée and close friends were invited to a special assembly where this was announced. The whole school went to the field and the 1st team rugby boys led us in war cries. Mr Theron’s family then unveiled the plaque and officially opened the Theron Field.
Martin Morrison, Rector of Christ Church Midrand and the Bishop of Reach SA started the school in 1997. He was the first principal of the school. It was his vision and commitment that saw the school grow to what it is today.
On 26 March 2018, the school invited Martin Morrison, and his wife, Jean to a special assembly on our top field. The whole school sang happy birthday to him. Mr Morrison was asked to unveil a plaque. To honour him, and to thank him, the top field was renamed the Morrison Field.

We have 3, fully functioning, IT Centres, each containing 20+ machines running Office 365 and other software. All pupils from the Grade 0 to the College have access to the centres. Two centres are dedicated to the College, where CAT and other IT skills are taught. Pupils in the Prep School study Computer Literacy using Purple Mash, Computers4Kids, design and drawing programs; as well as other online resources.
Christ Church Café
Christ Church Café is situated in the school reception and has wonderful food and beverages on offer.
It was born out of a desire to see more people sharing life’s joys and struggles together over coffee and good food. What started as a vision of a coffee shop, grew into so much more; including a bakery and function venue. Christ Church Café opened on the 10th of January 2016.
