Education finds itself going through significant change at this time in history and the learning environment has been greatly transformed; and it will continue to be further transformed over the next decade. It is imperative that DHS determines its own destiny by directing this change rather than following others. We have a vision and the capability to be a leading multi-nodal educational hub … a place where every boy is engaged and has a space to discover his innate talent and to develop it, so that ultimately he can lead a life of significance. In this pursuit we encourage and value the support of all our partners – from the staff and boys driving the vision and upholding our values; to support from parents and the Governing Body; to the invested interest of The DHS Foundation and to the Old Boys for their backing and support, be it by word of mouth or ultimately by entrusting their sons to us.
“School” is home and must continue to be so for countless generations to come. We have worked hard to re-establish relationships with communities and primary schools, especially those who have been traditionally supportive of us, and we continue to ensure that these relationships are nurtured. We are committed to the continued development of primary school boys as they begin their journey through Durban High School.
Our mission is to produce men of character. This is also our passion.
May the “Blue” course through your veins …
