About our school

Cowan House Co-educational Preparatory School is situated in the Hilton village, ten minutes from Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Cowan House provides a relevant and balanced education for boys and girls in their formative years from Grade RRR to Grade 7.

Day scholars as well as boarders enjoy a “home-from-home” environment. Each individual, with his or her unique talents, intelligences and needs, is equally important to us!

The ten hectare Cowan House playground provides ample opportunity and space for children to be children - climbing trees,

slipping and sliding down banks, exploring a wetland or having a great time in the multi-purpose indoor centre.

You are invited to come a visit us having the time of our lives!

Our Mission: Know Yourself Grow in Knowledge, Spirit and Friendship.
Our Values Based on the Christian ethos: Be Yourself, Be Reasonable, Be Caring, Be Your Best.
