St Nicholas Diocesan School is an independent, Anglican, co-educational, day and boarding school, for learners from Grade RR to Grade 12.

Situated in Pietermaritzburg, we offer affordable, English-medium, private education based on the CAPS curriculum. We are also a part of ISASA and the IEB. At St Nicholas, we are proud to offer an excellent education and provide a secure and caring environment where all children are given sufficient opportunities to realise their potential. The requirements of the ‘whole’ child are catered for – intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual and cultural.

At the heart of St Nicholas is our Christian faith. This is reflected in our motto; DEUS DUCIT – GOD LEADS. Our Anglican ethos is nurtured in classroom devotions, regular chapel services led by local clergy, Bible-based assemblies, staff devotions as well as regular Eucharists.
