OUR HERITAGE

Hermannsburg School

With a standard of excellence dating back to 1856, Hermannsburg is the country’s oldest
co-educational school, and the very first boarding school in Natal. Founded by German missionaries,
Hermannsburg’s rich heritage is preserved throughout the campus.

With a focus on positive education and the well-being of the individual, our scholars are taught the skills needed to succeed in an ever-changing world.

From Pre-school through to Grade 12, our school has a reputation for excellence – with education grounded in the principles of commitment, responsibility and pride.

WHERE YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS

Our Pre-school programme is designed to give our “Little Oaks” the freedom to grow in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. With a well-rounded curriculum that encourages development towards a strong sense of self-worth, individuality and independence.

WATERING A SEED FOR GROWTH

We pride ourselves on giving our young scholars an opportunity to find and develop their interests in fun group-learning environments. With small classes and a focus on bringing out the best in ourselves and others, our Primary School is the perfect place to start your adventure.

A PLACE TO KEEP GROWING

With the world changing around us at an ever increasing pace, we recognise the need to help develop confident, capable and adaptable young men and women. At our High School, we provide a positive and safe environment where the well-being of scholars is supported. Hermannsburg facilitates the pursuit of academic excellence, the formation of life-long friendships and offers all scholars the opportunity to find their passions.

MAKE HERMANNSBURG YOUR HOME

Our boarding facilities are your home away from home. Over the course of your stay with us, you’ll form bonds that last a lifetime, learn about yourself, and grow your understanding of the different cultures and perspectives that dot our rainbow nation.

FIND YOUR PASSION

Whether it’s on the sporting field, through music, or in clubs and societies that your heart beats faster – we’ll help you find your passion at Hermannsburg with our comprehensive extra-mural programme. We recognise that encouraging social, cultural and physical development is key to unlocking creative excellence and problem-solving skills. We share your passion.

A BRANCH FOR SUPPORT

We recognise that everyone learns and grows in different ways, at different times, and at different speeds. We’re fortunate to have two contracted professionals, committed to supporting our scholars in scholar support programmes – with a focus on early-intervention in our Pre-school and in the Foundation phase.
