The school is located in the heart of Diepsloot informal settlement and has become a refuge from parental abuse, a place to get a daily nutritious meal and, above all, a centre for learning for the most under-privileged township youth. The school caters for learners from Grade R to 12.

The mission of the school is to mould learners into diligent, responsible, tolerant, knowledgeable and accountable individuals who can confidently participate in the global society.
