History of the Center Of Science and Technology

COSAT first opened its doors in 1999 to a very small group of talented Grade 10’s with an interest in Maths and Science, who had been invited from local schools to complete their secondary education at COSAT. There was no subject choice [and this has never changed] – all learners did the requisite languages, plus Maths, Science, Biology and Computer Studies. Our first Matric class was in 2001 and, typically, we had a 100% pass rate, a high exemption rate and a healthy spread of subject distinctions. At the very beginning, the precedence for excellence was set.
