A Unique Educational Experience
King Edward VII School is one of the Top Public Schools in the country. Situated on a magnificent campus in the heart of Upper Houghton, Johannesburg, it consists of beautiful, old, traditional, National Monument buildings, complemented by state of the art sporting & cultural facilities. The School provides a holistic educational experience incorporating a highly relevant academic curriculum, a Cultural programme (including inter alia Dramatic Society, Public Speaking, Chess, Pipe Band & Debating) and a wide choice of sporting disciplines supported by professional coaching.

King Edward VII School is proud of its record of producing quality leaders in all spheres of endeavour for well over a century. This tradition continues today, and is epitomised by the outgoing Proteas Test captain Graeme Smith, who is a product of the School's long history of producing world-class captains and sportsmen.

Outside of the School's sporting achievements, add the names of the great 'captains' in their respective disciplines- Sir Donald Gordon, William Kentridge (2010 Kyoto Prize winner), Justice Johann Kriegler, Justice Richard Goldstone, Sir Sydney Kentridge QC, Sir Sydney Lipworth QC, Gary Player, leading United Kingdom financier Sir Mark Weinberg, and Tony Bloom amongst others.
