Hermannsburg School


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.

At Hermannsburg, we wish to nurture a sense of family within our boarders. To do this, the Grade 8s and 9s are paired in rooms, (no large dormitories here!) and each child shares with a different scholar each term in order to create better relationships. From Grade 10 to 11, the scholars are given more freedom with whom they choose to room, and in Grade 12 scholars have their own individual rooms.

Each weekend, activities are arranged for boarders. These range from trips to the beach, outings to regional shopping centres, events arranged by the Hermannsburg Peter-Paul Lutheran Congregation, high-tea with the Principal as well as “veldflieks”, floodlit volleyball and more.

We have a nursing sister on campus 24/7 who sees the children on a daily basis, and a fully-equipped clinic, with consulting rooms, and separate wards for boys and girls. In the event that a more serious medical problem arises, parents/guardians will be contacted and arrangements will be made for specialist help or transport to a nearby medical facility.


Currently undergoing a revamp in 2023. To enquire, contact us today.
