King Edward VII School

44 St Patrick Road, Houghton Estate, Johannesburg, 2198


One of the top public schools in the country, King Edward VII School provides a good quality, all round education at very good value for money. All round it possesses strong academics, a high standard of cultural activities (dramatic society, debating, public speaking, chess, pipe band) and a very high standard of sporting activities in more than ten different sporting codes to cater for the whole school population.

King Edward VII School, set on the ridge in Upper Houghton celebrated its Centenary in 2002. The School Building is a declared National Monument but in a literal and figurative sense the School's contribution to South African Society and beyond has been monumental. Thousands of young boys later to become wonderfully successful men in many diverse spheres entered the portals of the School and came to associate the buildings and fields with a gamut of emotions. Young men today, the very future of our rainbow nation tread in the footsteps of many who have shaped our nation's progress.
