We now number over 560 boys with 60 teachers, plus an array of support staff. From its very inception, it has been a school that loves a challenge. The Founder-Headmaster, Anton Murray, was a South African cricketer who sought to maintain the best traditions of liberal education. So, an emphasis on well-rounded development prevails, and games such as cricket, rugby and hockey have always figured prominently in our history as has drama, art and music.

In complex and diverse ways, this vibrant, innovative, forward-looking school continues to influence young men to make a sincere and real difference in South Africa and the world at large. Schools are not exclusively places of academic learning – they should be environments which generate a genuine urge and passion to help others and in so doing make the world a more equal place. Schools should engender the desire to learn and grow academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually and ultimately ensure that the joy of learning, discovering and exploring becomes a lifelong habit – St Alban’s College is such a place!
