Schools That Rock reports on St Charles College
The Tokyo Olympic Games has seen top athletes from around the world arriving in Japan over the past fortnight. Amongst them was St Charles College very own matric pupil, Matthew Sates.
News from Matt’s coach, Wayne Riddin, who is also the Swimming South Africa Team Coach, is that they are settling well into the Olympic village and Matt is raring to go. His first race is on Wednesday, 28 July at 1:15pm. The Olympic motto ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’ has been updated to ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together’, very apt in our current global circumstances.
We look forward to positive news in the coming weeks of excellent human endeavour, great dedication and discipline, and dreams unfolding into reality.
Saints is super proud to have a Saints boy representing us and we are behind him all the way! – Mr Rowan Irons (Director of Sport).

More on St Charles College, Pietermaritzburg
Our Commitment to you:
St Charles College has been an accredited University of Cambridge International Examination Centre since 2002. For nearly two decades we have been offering the Cambridge Curriculum with exceptional results, from Singapore Mathematics and Science in the Primary School to IGCSE and A-Levels in the Senior School. The boys in Sixth Form lead the way in sport, culture and pastoral responsibility as they prepare for independence in their future studies.
St Charles College is a non-denominational Christian School. We acknowledge God in all we do and are committed to the growth of the boys of our College through example, in hard work and discipline. Our hope is that what the boys learn at our College will be an education for life so that in society they will defend what is right, support what is just, and strive to respect the dignity of others.
PRE-SCHOOL TO SENIOR SCHOOL
Friendships are cultivated at an early age and boyhood development is enriched alongside the formal learning programme as boys progress together through the Junior and Senior Schools.
TEAM SPORTS PHILOSOPHY
Focusing on team sport and full participation, we aim to preserve the educational value of sport. Our 35-hectare campus supports our sporting philosophy, with world-class facilities including our floodlit water-based hockey surface, the famous Old Orchards Field, an indoor sports centre, and our blue chip ranked cricket oval.
BOARDING (GRADE 4 – 12)
We offer weekly and termly boarding, with modern accommodation for each grade in separate boarding houses. For all boarders, boarding represents an opportunity to cultivate life-long friendships, develop independence and make the most of all school programmes.
