Welcome To Conquesta Olympiads

Entries will only be accepted on our Excel Entry Forms, via email.

We run annual academic school Olympiads for both public and private schools, throughout South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Swaziland, covering the entire curriculum, written in English and Afrikaans.  Every participant is rewarded with a certificate at the year-end prize giving ceremonies at the schools.

Up to 2018 we concentrated on grades 1-7.  In 2019, we’re introducing grades 8 + 9 as well – as well as a new subject, ROBOTICS. 

In our commitment to excellence, we provide various benchmarking tools to increase the schools’ proficiency. 

We sell our vast 20-year collection of past papers online to parents and teachers for revision purposes at home and in the classroom.  

Conquesta is a member of ASTEMI, the Association for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation, which falls under the umbrella of the NRF (National Research Foundation) in South Africa.

  • We are proud to be partnered with Project Rhino KZN to save our rhino's.  Project Rhino KZN and the Kingsley Holgate Foundation began the Rhino art - Let the Children be Heard campaign, which creates an awareness in children about the crucial situation our Rhino's face, bordering extinction due to poaching.  We encourage you to get as many young people involved and made aware as you can.  Get brochure here.  Donate here.  Thank you.
