OUR STORY

A GLOBAL FOOTPRINT


Graeme Crawford, a renowned South African educator, opened his first school in 1993. In the following five years, the Crawford Schools grew to 21 in total. In 2000, working closely with his sister Sheena Crawford-Kempster, Graeme founded Reddam House Constantia in Cape Town. In January 2001, Graeme opened the first school outside of South Africa: Reddam House Sydney. Both Atlantic Sea Board, Cape Town and Bedfordview started in 2003. A newly constructed Reddam House Waterfall opened its doors in 2012 in a residential property development on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Following the successful launch of Waterfall, Reddam House added 3 more schools in South Africa – Somerset, Durbanville and Umhlanaga. Reddam House also branched out to the UK, acquiring Bearwood College as one of the latest additions to the Reddam House family. Reddam House is part of Inspired, the group currently boasts 27 premium schools across the globe.

 

THE ORIGINS OF OUR NAME

TUTUM TE REBORE REDDAM


The REDDAM motto has its origins in Scottish history with the first Monarch of Crawford who saved King David the First of Scotland from certain death by a stag during a hunting expedition. The Monarch of Crawford adopted the motto “TUTUM TE REBORE REDDAM” which means “I will keep you safe by my strength”, and his Coat-of-Arms included the stag’s head as a symbol of the Monarch’s bravery. On marrying his wife, the monarch included the fleur-de-lis in his Coat-of-Arms. Since then, the Coat of Arms of the Crawford clan has always incorporated the stag and fleur-de-lis.

In 1999, Mrs Crawford-Kempster, Director of Reddam House, worked with Mr Burnell, the State Herold at the Bureau of Heraldry in Pretoria and using the elements of the stag and the fleur-de-lis, created a Coat-of-Arms for Reddam House.

Our school’s name is taken from the Latin for “give back”, and our school motto “We shall give back” is a fitting sentiment and one which serves as a reminder to our students of the importance of contributing to the community.

 

Tutum means protect         Roboris means strength           Reddam means give back
