General Info

We charge a consolidated fee of R512 per term for extras. This covers items like some dry cleaning, laundry bags, minor duplicating costs, newspapers, minor sanatorium requisites, sunscreen, certain school plays and school socials at Hilton College. An additional fee is charged to boys participating in golf, rowing, and canoeing. This fee is to cover the additional transport costs and limited maintenance on the equipment, but doesn’t cover expenses should your son be selected to participate at outside competitions/regattas/tours etc.

Books and stationery, medicines, doctors' fees, special entertainment and sundry travelling are not included in fees.

Fees for locally resident parents are payable annually or monthly, over 10 months, in advance by debit order. You can obtain the relevant form from our Finance office. We require foreign resident parents to settle fees either annually or termly in advance. Whether you live in South Africa or abroad, we may offer a discount if you pay the annual fee before the end of January. Please contact the Finance office to find out more. Extras for all parents are due on presentation of an account.

Entry Fee

On acceptance, you will need to pay a R99 415.00 non-refundable Entrance Fee, the equivalent of one term’s fees at the current rate, to the school as a contribution to the school’s development programme.

Foreign students’ deposit

Boys whose families reside outside of South Africa are required to pay a Foreign Pupil’s Deposit of one and a half term’s fees. This deposit is intended to cover the costs of repatriation, should such a situation arise, and is refundable. This is standard practice amongst independent schools in South Africa.


We encourage parents to participate in a scheme whereby they can claim full remission of fees if a boy is absent from school for more than 15 consecutive days owing to illness, or 5 consecutive days if absent due to an injury. Accident insurance is, however, compulsory. The annual medical expense limit is R120 000 per annum and excess may apply from time to time. There is cover for permanent disablement up to a maximum of  R750 000.

The school will process all claims and forward to the claim administrators who will admit claims in accordance with the policy wording. More details of this cover are available on request.
