Michaelhouse, the Anglican Diocesan College of Natal, was founded in 1896 and is an internationally renowned boarding school for senior boys. Situated on a secure estate in the beautiful Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the school has a fully residential staff which facilitates a high level of pastoral care and interaction with the pupils. The distinctive ivy clad architecture of inter-linked quadrangles inspires a sense of belonging amongst the 565 boys of international and regional origin.
Michaelhouse is a school of established heritage with an innate respect for the individual. It is this long held tradition that distinguishes Michaelhouse from other senior boys’ schools. This focus on individual and all round ability generates an incredible breadth of excellence illustrated in achievement across a spectrum of disciplines ranging from academics, sport and culture to conservation, community involvement and personal growth:
These achievements offer credence to the founder of the School’s vision:
"Our aim is to make, not accountants, not clerks, not clergymen, but men; men of understanding, thought and culture."
Founder James Cameron Todd, Speech Day 1897

Public schools are state controlled and independent schools are privately governed. All private schools were included into the independent school category.
