At Port Alfred School we cater for pre-school children all the way through to matric. The sporty kids and the academic kids. The public speakers and the quiet organisers.

We believe in growing the whole student and strive to provide a happy and healthy environment that nurtures and benefits everyone.

We are a family school at the sea and are fortunate to have a team of dedicated parents, past pupils, teachers and community leaders at our side.

Behind every good student is a good school. And behind every good school, is a great community.

A word from our Principal

Nigel Adams

During the term our Matric class of 2021 sat for their preliminary exams in preparation for the final exams which begin on 27 October 2021. We take this opportunity to wish them all the best for this final leg of their school journey.

Play is a child’s way of learning and is essential for growth and development. We offer a stimulating environment that unlocks the imagination.

These are key developmental years in any child’s life and every effort is made to make school as interesting and as enriching as possible.
