Michaelhouse School

Situated on a secure estate in the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, the school has a fully residential staff which facilitates a high level of pastoral care and interaction with the pupils. The distinctive architecture of the inter-linked quadrangles inspires a tremendous sense of belonging amongst the 560 boys.


Boys are admitted to D and C Blocks (Grades 9 and 10) only if a place becomes available. Entry is determined by previous academic performance, a personal interview with the Rector, a copy of the most recent school report and a confidential report from the applicant’s Headmaster.
