Hilton is home to no fewer than five schools, including the boarding schools Hilton College and St Anne’s. Hilton College is one of South Africa’s most well-known and prestigious private boys’ schools. The school is well known for its extremely competitive sports teams and as a result of this many of South Africa’s national rugby and cricket stars were schooled here.
Another one of Hilton’s top schools is St Anne’s Diocesan College, an independent girls’ boarding school. Founded in 1877, St Anne’s has a long tradition of providing quality education for girls. About 85% of the enrolment are boarders from all over South Africa, neighbouring countries, and other parts of the world.
Grace College, a co-educational school is the newest private school in the Midlands area. Founded in 1999 they have become an increasingly popular choice of school. Their purpose is to build a school that “transforms young adults through innovative educational excellence”.
Hilton College is a remarkable, all-boys, all-boarding school set on a beautiful 1700 hectare estate in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands of South Africa.
Hilton College strives to be Africa’s leading secondary boarding school for boys, providing a world-class education by cultivating a culture that embraces holistic educational practices and the best lessons of South Africa’s unique non-racial democracy and upholds the Christian Faith which has been the essence of the school’s 130 year old tradition. This will be achieved through excellent governance, leadership and management; highly qualified and experienced staff; effective pupil teacher ratios; proactive communication and collaboration with parents and other stakeholders; comfortable accommodation; exceptional sporting and Cultural facilities; and the natural beauty of a large peri-urban estate.
Michaelhouse, the Anglican Diocesan College of Natal, was founded in 1896 and is a South African boarding school for senior boys with an international reputation.
Situated on a secure estate in the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, the school has a fully residential staff which facilitates a high level of pastoral care and interaction with the pupils. The distinctive architecture of the inter-linked quadrangles inspires a tremendous sense of belonging amongst the 560 boys.
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 niche in life as having the freedom and encouragement to explore it and to become the best one can be.
Michaelhouse is a boarding school for boys set amongst the rolling green hills of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands in South Africa, providing secondary education from E Block (Grade 8) to A Block (Grade 12).
Michael House provides a dynamic and progressive education for boys that respects individual needs and embraces diversity and change in pursuit of academic, sporting and cultural excellence, while providing social and leadership skills and nurturing spiritual growth.
Grace College is passionate about providing a sound academic education in a private, co-educational, day scholar environment.
Founded in 1999 we’ve quickly become the high school of choice amongst Midlands’ parents who appreciate our purpose, which is to build a school that “Transforms young adults through innovative educational excellence”.
With a highly committed and happy staff complement who dedicate themselves to developing students beyond initial expectations, we have achieved some remarkable results not only academically but more particularly through the leadership and personal development of many of our pupils.
Now situated on a beautiful 22 hectare site on the Hilton College Road, we’ve commenced a development programme to expand our facilities, while capitalising on the spectacular views of the Midlands countryside and the Drakensberg range.
Grace College is about partnerships, between families and the College, between each pupil and their teachers, between the College and partner/feeder schools and within various aspects of our LEAP and Masihambisane School Outreach Programmes.
St Anne’s Diocesan College
Founded in 1877, St Anne’s Diocesan College is an independent girls’ high school situated in Hilton, with a long tradition of providing excellent, balanced and globally relevant education in a caring boarding environment. St Anne’s is a made up of a majority of termly boarders, a portion of weekly boarders and a small, integrated community of day boarders.
St Anne’s is an Anglican school, and the name Diocesan College indicates our membership of the Anglican Church and the Diocese of KwaZulu-Natal. As a result of this important relationship, the College endeavours to create a secure spiritual foundation within each girl. Entrants do not necessarily have to be Christian, but our girls are expected to attend regular worship in our Chapel.
Owing to the relatively small size of the College, girls have every opportunity to develop as individuals whether in sport, music, dramatic performances or the classroom. Our College is firmly committed to providing a holistic education for each girl. There is a wide range of activities within the broad curriculum offered at St Anne’s. Sport provides opportunities for those with varying degrees of talent to enjoy their physical recreation at either a social, team or high performance level.
There is a comprehensive music and drama programme. Social Responsibility initiatives provide a chance for each girl to understand her responsibilities to society and, in a meaningful way, participate in partnerships with those less privileged. Academic standards are high. There is a strong work ethic in the College, and the final results obtained in the IEB National Senior Certificate examinations are consistently excellent.
