About Maritzburg College

Maritzburg College is an all-boys school, catering to both boarders and day scholars, situated in the heart of Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal. Providing top-quality education to boys from Grade 8 to Grade 12, we draw on our long and proud tradition, as well as our dynamic and forward-thinking ethos. At the gates to Maritzburg College, the sight of our historic, red-brick buildings and avenues of trees set the scene for an exceptional schooling experience.

Maritzburg College believes that in order to direct potential, we must focus on equipping each and every boy to strive for excellence in their particular sphere of endeavour. Our world-class academic, sporting and cultural programmes, our dedicated staff and excellent facilities allow us to do just this. We believe that by creating an environment in which a strong sense of tradition is upheld by our core values of honour, integrity, courage, self-discipline, commitment and respect, our boys have every opportunity to grow and thrive.

Our boarding houses provide a progressive, homely environment for our boys, combining a supportive spirit and staff with many of the traditional virtues that have seen the school flourish for over a century and a half. Boarders and day-scholars alike are fiercely loyal to the school and proudly call themselves College boys, long after they matriculate.
