ABOUT US

Kingswood, founded in 1894, is an independent, boarding and day school that caters for girls and boys from pre-school to bridging year (post matric). It is very much a family school and has children from all over South Africa, as well as a number from various other countries. 73% of pupils, however, come from the Eastern Cape, giving the school its rich, local heritage.

Set in beautiful grounds, Kingswood offers its pupils a well-rounded education, with wonderful facilities available in both the academic and sporting spheres. While all the traditional subjects and sports are offered, there are many other less well-known activities such as model engineering, rock climbing and Toastmasters to keep the pupils busy.

The College is very proud to be a Methodist School but welcomes children of many different denominations and faiths. The Grade 12 pupils write the Independent Examination Board (IEB) matriculation examinations and the school has consistently gained excellent results. Information Technology is taught in the well-equipped IT Centre, and pupils have access to e-mail and internet facilities. Kingswood is renowned for its Music School, which has won international and national competitions in the past.

The school's Travel Officer co-ordinates all travel arrangements. The majority of pupils in the Senior School are boarders, with about 160 pupils coming from countries outside of South Africa.

The College is a member of ISASA (Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa) and can accommodate a maximum of 430 pupils in the Senior School while the Junior School’s capacity is about 300. Kingswood operates close to capacity, and parents are therefore encouraged to submit application forms timeously.
