Midstream College was the dream of the developers of Midstream Estates, the Bondev Group. The school was opened in January, 2006, by its directors, namely, Johan van Wyk, Jan Zeederberg, Riaan Botma and Chris Smith.
With quality education and development demands in mind, it was decided that the Latin word Excellentia, which means excellence, would be the motto of the school. The school badge is a combination of landmarks from the area: the bridges over the stream, the Highveld ridges and the towers at the entrance to Midstream.
After much deliberation, it was decided that the College would be a parallel medium institution. Midstream College Primary School was officially opened on 17 January 2006, with Vernon Harmse as headmaster. There were originally 21 teachers and 370 learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7.
Midstream College Primary School’s school song was written and composed by a very talented previously employed music teacher, Antoinette Holford. The school hall was officially opened on 19 January 2007 and the Bondev pavilion was officially opened in November 2007.
Midstream College currently consists of Midstream Pre-Primary School, Midstream College Primary School, Midstream Ridge Primary School and Midstream College High School.
