Welcome to St James School! OUR NEXT OPEN DAY IS FRIDAY 1 NOVEMBER FROM 12:30 TO 14:30. PLEASE CALL US ON 031 309 7013 TO BOOK YOUR SPOT FOR GRADE R TO GRADE 7 - APPLICATIONS OPEN!

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.
