Impressive boarding facilities make it possible for scholars from all over Southern Africa and abroad, to feel at home in a secure environment.
Our Boarding Establishment, Northfields Manor, opened in September 2004 to cater for boarders from grade 6 to 12. Our new Senior Primary boarding establishment was created this year and we now cater for boys and girls from grades 4 to 12. We provide separate accommodation for boys and girls in a safe, secure environment that has a strong emphasis on discipline within a Christian ethos.
The Boarding Establishment is situated on the upper campus, next to the sporting facilities and has a view over the rolling hills of Kwazulu Natal, giving it a sense of country living. The Boarding Establishment is a large house that has been revamped into a comfortable, welcoming home.
The girls have the privilege of boarding in the house and the boys live in a separate dormitory with beautiful gardens and swimming pool. It can currently accommodate 45 boarders. There is a Boarder Master and Mistress, Assistant Boarder Master and Mistress and a Matron supervising the running of the establishment.
Professional caterers ensure the food is of a good standard in the boarding establishment. We truly believe our Boarding Establishment to be one of our greatest marketing assets.
