About Conquesta Olympiads

Conquesta was established in South Africa in 1998 (grades 4-7) and in 2005 we introduced grades 1-3.  The olympiads are written in South Africa and Namibia / Botswana / Swaziland. We have grown considerably to include approximately 50% of all the independent Schools in South Africa (including ISASA, CURRO), and hundreds of Government Schools across South Africa and her neighbouring countries.  

We established Conquesta Olympiads Pty Ltd in Australia, servicing Australian and New Zealand schools from 2008.  

We provide all our olympiad papers as past papers, the year after they're written, so have a huge data bank of past papers for use in the classroom and at home, for revision purposes.  New papers are written each year to keep them current and are available worldwide from our past paper website.

We believe that the growth we've seen over the years is due to the high standards we maintain. We have kept our pricing structures as low as possible so that students from all income groups can participate. 


Purpose and Vision

Our purpose is to encourage and inspire primary school children to become aware of their self worth and potential, building up their self esteem and confidence and acknowledging their efforts, regardless of results.  To illuminate to parents and teachers alike each child's strengths and weaknesses, so they can be nurtured accordingly, and to provide a benchmarking tool where each school can measure their achievements against the national averages of participating schools.  MLA and SLA Reports for grades 4 - 7 break down your school's Maths and Science results by learning area by grade.  This enables you to identify your school's strengths and weaknesses by learning area so that positive focus can be given to the weak areas.

Our vision is to enable a sense of achievement within the hearts of all students, including those who are not academically inclined, encouraging them to aspire to their full potential.
