" The spirit and camaraderie that King Edward VII School has engendered sets us apart from most other schools."
Our School remains at the cutting edge of holistic education, ever mindful of our ethos, values and heritage. The rounded and balanced environment for which our School is famed combines legacy with leadership, high moral standards with high-tech facilities, all focused on an unrelenting goal for the boys we teach and mentor – Academic, Cultural and Sporting Excellence.
While formal and informal aspects of education are interwoven, extra-mural activities teach lessons that cannot be learnt in the classroom - legacy, leadership and loyalty.
The School’s loyal men have fought in many wars and won many military honours. Not all came home. The School has the highest number of fallen outside Great Britain from the two World Wars. Alumni have fought for freedom and democracy in South Africa and for justice throughout the world. Above all our alumni have a loyalty to their friends and schoolmates and a generosity of spirit, which cannot easily be matched.
Of the Financial Mail’s eight greatest achievers of the past century, three were educated at King Edward VII School – an achievement unmatched by any other South African school.
Over the past century, thousands of youngsters have come to us as boys and left as men. Men with the education, confidence, morals, discipline, passion and courage to shape our nation’s progress.
Not all of the School’s most successful achievers were great scholars - but the School equipped them with the skills, drive and conviction to ensure they could compete with the best of the rest – not only in South Africa, but worldwide.
Many are internationally renowned – as leaders and captains of industry, sports icons, human rights activists, academics, artists or authors.
Could you be such a person? Could you tread in their footsteps – or create a new path? What we do know is that we will educate, mentor and enable you to accomplish your ambition.
Our Mission is ambitious and guides the school's philosophy, culture and code of conduct.
