Thornview Prestige College

Soshanguve was never known as a place of opportunity. It was established in 1974 on land that was to be incorporated into a Bantu homelands that bordered on Mabopane in Bophuthatswana for the Sotho, Shangaan, Nguni and Venda people (thus the name) who were resettled from Atteridgeville and Mamelodi.

When Thornview Prestige College opened its doors to 904 new pupils in January 2015, this was beginning of change. In 2016 the total number of pupils grew to 1 380 between grades R and 11, and 2017 sees Thornview welcome its first class of grade 12 learners. For the children of Soshanguve, access to quality education, learning activities and opportunities have never existed before.
