Hermannsburg School

Established as a school in 1856, Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg (DSH) is the oldest existing independent school in KwaZulu-Natal. The school actively promotes excellence within the learning environment. The school is committed to preparing all its learners to become competent members of, and contributors to, a modern, multicultural society. The school has a long and proud tradition of achievement and innovation. All its learners are offered the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the German language and culture. As a result, they gain a unique insight into the concept of the modern "global village".

English is the preferred medium of instruction. The ability to speak or understand German is not a prerequisite for entry into the school, except in the FET phase. Learners may be admitted at the Grade R level (Kindergarten) and remain at this level for 3 to 5 years. Learners may also be admitted in any of the Grades from Grade 1 to 12, subject to the school’s admission policy and procedure. All learners attend regular German lessons. The medium of instruction for History in the High School is German.

Learners who successfully graduate from the DSH, and obtain a German Language Diploma (DSD), are eligible for study permits and immediate entry into German universities.

The school’s country setting in the beautiful KwaZulu-Natal Midlands offers the ideal environment for a well-rounded co-educational experience. The tranquil surroundings are an added bonus to the high academic standard offered by the school.

As an independent school, Hermannsburg provides a secure environment for its learners, promoting their personal growth and encouraging them to participate in their communities with commitment, tolerance, consideration and sincerity. Based on its Lutheran heritage, the school offers its learners an encounter with the Christian faith. The school is open to all who have the ability to fulfil the requirements set by the curriculum and who wish to avail themselves of what is offered.

Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg School builds on over 150 years of experience in education, to face the inevitable changes needed to keep up with the demands of a developing world.
