The judgment in the AB and Another v Pridwin Preparatory School and others Constitutional Court case held that where a learner is at an independent school,  that learner’s education at the school cannot be terminated without an appropriate and substantively fair procedure.

This is significant in that it ensures that independent schools may not assert cancellation clauses in contracts with parents without following due process.  We congratulate the amici, the Centre for Child Law, Equal Education and the Equal Education Law Centre for their contributions in this case and which was acknowledged by the Constitutional Court.
