PLG Northriding Academy opened in January 2016.  The school is centrally located in Randburg, Johannesburg, in Banbury Crossing; on the corner of Olievenhout and Malibongwe Drive.  This is the first PLG School in the Randburg area, offering the surrounding Northriding, Olivedale and Northgate communities the convenience of affordable independent schooling on their doorstep.
