Innovative approach to education…

An independent, non-profit-making organisation. Simba Primary School was founded in 1980, in response to parent’s requests for a new and innovative approach to their children’s education. It was intended to provide a quality education to children of all races, colours and creeds. That focus has never changed. Today Simba has its own Secondary School, Sixth form and boarding house offering a high quality British-based international education to over 500 students. From pre-school to I.G.C.S.E. and A-levels, Simba School provides a firm academic foundation, underlying a broad and well-rounded curriculum. It instills in its pupil a love of learning, and a strong sense of community.

Set in its beautiful garden surroundings, Simba School has established a reputation for being one of the finest independent private schools in Zambia, with an impressive academic tradition. Situated on Airport Road, in the Copperbelt city of Ndola. Simba is easily accessible to the residents of Ndola, Luanshya and Kitwe, from whom the majority of our student population is drawn. With our boarding facilities at Tau House and our excellent reputation, many of our secondary school students are from Lusaka and its surrounding areas.

Our School is recognised nationally for providing educational leadership, sharing a sense of purpose among staff, students, parents and the community, and establishing an environment that conveys the message that all students can enjoy the challenge and responsibilities that come with learning. We aim to develop in each child an enquiring mind and a thirst for knowledge; to equip each child with the necessary skills of oracy, literacy and numeracy; to ensure that each child reaches his/her potential and becomes a valued member of society; to achieve and maintain a high standard in all aspects of the children’s work and behavior; and to create a happy, secure environment in which each child is able to develop self confidence and social competence.

Simba School is a member of the Independent Schools Association of Zambia, an organisation that addresses the unique challenges and opportunities inherent in proprietary school operation.

Simba takes a leading role in providing inter school competitions and festivals in a number of sports, in the Arts and in Science.
