St Dominic's Priory School

This is where is all begins...

We are an Independent, Catholic, Co-educational School 

for Pre-Grade R (4-year-olds turning 5) to Matric


As an independent, Catholic, co-educational day school in the Dominican tradition, assessing under the IEB, St Dominic’s Priory School prides itself in nurturing and developing the child as a whole, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to take on the world as they experience it, as well as the world that awaits them after Grade 12. We not only prepare for the future but engage critically with the present and reflect carefully on the past.

St Dominic’s Priory School is a school that nurtures the whole child, from their academic development to their spiritual growth, as well as their sporting and cultural needs. We not only think about readiness for this world, but for eternal happiness in the world to come. Grounded firmly in the Catholic tradition, St Dominic’s is a place where every child, regardless of their background, can grow safely to be the best version of themselves, aided by God’s grace. They are encouraged to achieve their best and to build friendships that last a lifetime. They are invited to come to know God, revealed in Jesus Christ and His Church. To come to Priory is to enter into a trusted tradition of excellent education, guided by Truth Himself. To come to Priory is to enter the school of discipleship, learning what it means to be analytical, compassionate, fair, and noble. To come to Priory is to learn to love, and to be loved. To come to Priory is to start on a path to meaning and success.

Because this is where it all begins… Will you begin with us?
