King Edward Vll School



King Edward VII School has remained one of South Africa’s top monastic schools, and a beacon of providing a world class broad educational experience.

King Edward VII School is situated on a magnificent campus in the heart of Upper Houghton. It consists of beautiful old traditional buildings which are a national monument, complemented by a state-of-the-art sporting, cultural and educational facilities.

The School prides itself on optimising and nurturing inherent academic, sporting and cultural talents of all its learners and is justifiably proud of its legacy of producing leaders in all spheres of endeavor, for well over a century.

Our School remains at the cutting edge of holistic education, ever mindful of our ethos, values and heritage. The rounded and balanced environment for which our School is famed combines legacy with leadership, high moral standards with high-tech facilities, all focused on an unrelenting goal for the boys we teach and mentor – Academic, Cultural and Sporting Excellence.

The tradition continues unabated, and the School consistently delivers top academic results, as evidenced in our matric results, which ensure that most of our learners achieve University Entrance passes on a sustained basis.

The School provides a holistic educational experience incorporating a highly relevant curriculum, and cultural programme (including a dramatic society, public speaking, chess, a pipe band, and music & debating society).

While formal and informal aspects of education are interwoven, extra-mural activities teach lessons that cannot be learnt in the classroom – legacy, leadership and loyalty.

Sports Facilites: The School enjoys the benefits of world-class sports facilities, including a state-of-the-art Aquatic Centre, a High Performance Centre and weather-proof cricket nets
