St Thomas Aquinas School is an independent school of excellence in Witbank for 85 years. Established in 1924 by the Dominican Sisters of King Williams Town, St Thomas Aquinas has grown from humble beginnings to the school that it is today. In the words of the founding principal, Mother Lucy, “God has brought us to Witbank. I believe it is His Will that we come here. We will come.”
St Thomas Aquinas is a Catholic school that fosters Christian formation of young people through the teaching and living of Gospel values in our school community. Although open to children of all religions, it is a condition of acceptance into St Thomas that students participate in religious activities. Students are also encouraged to live out these values by contributing to the well-being of those less fortunate than themselves.

Public schools are state controlled and independent schools are privately governed. All private schools were included into the independent school category.
