About Us

St James is a private, co-educational school which is part of a worldwide family of schools. 

We are based in Greyville, Durban, and we offer a first-class education to Grades R – 7.

Our small class groups and experienced, caring staff are a recipe for success, with our school maintaining high academic standards. 

A St James child is like no other – they leave our school with a strong sense of self and a firm moral foundation, which makes them a fine example to all around them.
