Michaelhouse, the Anglican Diocesan College of Natal, was founded in 1896 and is an internationally renowned boarding school for senior boys. Situated on a secure estate in the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the school has a fully residential staff which facilitates a high level of pastoral care and interaction with the pupils. The distinctive ivy clad architecture of inter-linked quadrangles inspires a sense of belonging amongst the 620 boys of international and regional origin.

Michaelhouse is a school of established heritage with an innate respect for the individual. It is this long held tradition that distinguishes Michaelhouse from other senior boys’ schools.

We believe that going to senior school is as much about finding one’s special niche in life, as having the freedom and encouragement to explore it, and to become the best one can be. We strive to allow the differentiated potential of each boy to emerge and to thrive.

It is this focus on the individual that stretches the concept of strength through diversity to the extreme. It is also this focus that informs our leadership and mentorship programmes.
At Michaelhouse boys thrive on opportunities to explore, to learn, to play, to challenge the mediocre and to lead as men.

Michaelhouse has an outstanding record of academic, cultural and sporting excellence, as well as community involvement supported by modern facilities and a fully resident team of innovative staff.

With an active base of over 6500 Alumni across five continents, Michaelhouse has produced in excess of 30 Rhodes Scholars, 10 Elsie Ballot Scholars and over 150 sportsmen who have played their game at international level.

Michaelhouse is a member if the Independent Schools Association of South Africa.
