With an incredibly proud heritage dating back to 1855, St Andrew’s is steeped in rich tradition and, at the same time, is a thoroughly modern, progressive boys’ boarding school. The curriculum is a full one, providing opportunities for boys to realise their unique gifts and pursue them with passion. The academic, sporting, and cultural aspects of the school provide a foundation of absolute excellence that is enriched further by a dynamic Christian environment.
Situated in the beautiful Eastern Cape town of Grahamstown, our school is close to Rhodes University, shops and amenities and yet, a stone’s throw away are some of the best beaches, wildlife areas, and country districts that South Africa has to offer. Outdoor education, therefore, is a key component of the College experience, including the incredible Fish River Journey, various outings in each grade, our own bush camp, and a beach shack. From Grade 8 to Grade 12 every boy is part of a structured leadership curriculum that provides him with skills and experience in progressive, authoritative servant leadership, that he may go out from here as a young man of substance, ready to lead a life of significance.
