St John’s D.S.G. is an independent, medium-sized Anglican school situated in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. From Grade RR to Grade 12, it offers a liberal education on the foundation of a strong Christian ethos. It provides a caring and value-based educational environment for boarders and day scholars.
The value system of love and discipline, established through over 100 proud years of education, and based on Christian principles, forms the cornerstone of the school.
St John’s D.S.G. is fondly and aptly described by its pupils as a “Small School with Big Heart”. The school exudes a sense of intimacy and warmth, providing a nurturing environment for girls where work, play and worship are encouraged to ensure all-round development.
