About Us

St James School Durban offers a first-class education to pupils from Grade R – Grade 7. We are a co-ed, multi-faith school in Greyville, Durban. 

We maintain a high academic standard, whilst also developing children who will contribute positively to society through service and excellence of character.

Our small class sizes allow for individualised attention and help address the needs of all our children.

Why choose us?


We encourage the children and staff to practise a moment of stillness before and after each activity. This helps improve mental health and acuity.

Excellent Academic Programme

The CAPS curriculum forms the basis of our syllabus, and the children are exposed to many exciting co-curricular opportunities.

Sport Lessons

We offer PE during the day, and extra-curricular sport for all grades.
Healthy bodies, healthy minds!

  • I honestly don’t know how to begin, and thank you, the principal and everyone at school. I am so happy that (child’s name) landed in your hands. There is a job, and there is a soul job, and all I can observe from all the teachers at St James is that they ALL are determined and called for this, and this further extends to the positive character building that my son has gotten from having been at St James since Grade 3. I am grateful for the willingness to assist. The staff tend to go the extra mile. How amazing that we have formed part of St James. Forever grateful. Grade 7 Parent
