St Dominic's Priory School

Our School

St Dominic's Priory, founded in 1900, is an independent, co-educational, Pre-Grade R - Grade 12, Catholic School. We are situated in beautiful surroundings of wood and parkland near Walmer, easily accessible from the main thoroughfares of Port Elizabeth.

We strive to provide an enjoyable and rewarding learning and teaching experience for our pupils and teachers. We believe that quality education involves the development of all pupil's different capabilities.

We believe in creating a happy, stimulating and beneficial environment in a family atmosphere. In keeping with the Dominican tradition, we follow our motto, Veritas, above all things: "the Truth of the Lord that endures forever." (Ps. 117)

We invite you to join us as a member of the Priory Family.
