Become Part Of Our History
St Andrew’s College, St Andrew’s Preparatory School and The Diocesan School for Girls have collectively been centres of academic excellence for over 446 years.
St Andrew’s Prep educates boys and girls from Grades 000 to Grade 3. The girls move up to DSG and the boys continue at Prep until the end of Grade 7. They spend their Grade 8-12 years at St Andrew’s College.
The three schools are happy and are closely connected. Pupils thrive in a vibrant and safe environment, supported by a foundation of excellence and Christian values.
The three schools lie adjacent to Rhodes University, forming a unique educational belt in the historical city of Grahamstown/Makhanda. The cultural life of the City is vibrant; home to the much-loved National Arts Festival and the annual National SciFest.
Pupils write the Independent Examination Board matriculation examinations and have the option of A levels through Cambridge.
Our excellent full-time boarding facilities become home to pupils from over 22 different countries. A full seven-day week programme includes academic, cultural, sporting and spiritual activities.
The schools are proud of their sporting achievements. With excellent coaching and facilities, many past pupils excel in regional and national teams, and some have participated in the Olympic Games.
