Our boarding school offers safe, modern accommodation for learners throughout high school. With a maximum of 4 boarders per room, free Wi-Fi, laundry and housekeeping facilities, comfortable learning areas, and supervision by devoted staff, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home. The school and boarding school work together to ensure that learners are supported academically and emotionally. Therefore, learners receive help with their homework and studies, and enjoy planned fun activities every second weekend.

Arrange a tour

Grantleigh has a high school in Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal. We offer an excellent education that combines academics with sports and cultural activities. Teaching takes place in English, we form part of the Curro school group and we are an IEB school. We also have a boarding school that provides a safe, warm home for learners who want to join our school but don’t live nearby.

Our history

After recognising the need for good education in their area, Fred and Renette Grant founded Grantleigh on their Mposa farm in 1996. Their goal was to provide a well-rounded and balanced education based on Christian values (ethics and morals). Our school opened its doors in 1997 with 16 nursery-school learners and 5 junior-preparatory phase learners dressed in civvies, and teaching took place on the founders’ veranda and in their TV room. Swimming lessons were offered in the family pool and cricket lessons started on their tennis court. As interest in the school grew rapidly, construction soon began on school buildings and sports fields. By 1998, 123 learners started the school year in newly built classrooms, we started a transport service, and requests from parents soon sparked talks to include a high school the following year.

Our school kept expanding to higher grades, more transport services and a wider variety of offerings in academics, sports and culture. Our first headmaster, Peter Terry-Lloyd, brought great expertise to our school and by 2003 – only seven years after opening – our classes spanned Grade R to Grade 12 for the first time. During that year, we also inducted our first head boy and head girl, as well as our first parent advisory committee (PAC). By 2014, we had joined the Curro school group as a Curro Select school and have continued to provide excellent education to learners in the wider Richards Bay area. We are continuously improving our offering and expanding our school to accommodate more learners, still within small class sizes, with a wider range of interests.
