Welcome to St James School! APPLICATIONS FOR 2020 ARE NOW OPEN! PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US REGARDING OUR NEW GRADE R CLASS IN 2020.

We are an independent primary school offering a first-class education to 140 children aged 6-13 (Grades 1-7) from the Durban area in South Africa. Our pupils come from a wide range of religious and ethnic backgrounds.

We are different from other independent schools in two key ways:

  • As well as offering a first-class academic education and extra-curricular activities such as music, drama, visual arts, a state of the art Science Laboratory and sport, we also aim to educate the whole child, teaching them sound moral values, good character and strong discipline.

Education and virtue are the greatest gifts that can be given to future leaders in South Africa. Courage, hard work, self-mastery and intelligent effort are all essential to a successful life.

Thank you for your interest in St James.
