Welcome to St James School Durban!

We are an independent primary school offering a first-class education to children aged 6-13 (Grades 1-7) from the Durban area in South Africa. Our pupils come from a wide range of cultural, ethnic and social backgrounds.

We are different from other independent schools in two key ways:

  •  Fees are partially subsidized by international fundraising. So children who would not otherwise be able to benefit from an independent education are able to do so, even though for many families it still means making great sacrifices.
  • As well as offering a first-class academic education and extra-curricular activities such as music and sport, we also aim to educate the whole child, teaching them sound moral values, good character and strong discipline.

Thank you for your interest in St James.
