The Hilton College of today has been built up over a period of over a hundred years. The electric light, macadamized roads and hot showers which we take for granted were unknown to early Hiltonians. While today a Hilton boy swims in a modern tiled pool, complete with filtration plant, his counterpart of sixty years ago and more swam in the farm dam. While a motor car brings the Durban boy to Hilton in just over an hour, ninety years ago the trip took two days. Prep was done by oil lamp; hot baths were the privilege of seniors, water being carried by paraffin tins. The present dining hall was once the chapel, assembly hall and concert hall as well.

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