INNOVATION | DIVERSITY | EXCELLENCE

Merrifield Preparatory School and College, rooted in the Eastern Cape, prides itself on not only producing future-proof, aware and resilient students, but also on growing and nurturing each individual while at a formative stage of their development. With over 700 students enrolled currently at the East London campus, from Grade 000 to Grade 12, Merrifield has grown from strength to strength since 1997 when founding parents envisioned the school as a leading light in independent education in the province. Merrifield Matric students over the years have achieved 100% pass rate and over 90% exemption rate in the IEB examinations. It is not only academic excellence that is held in high esteem at Merrifield. Teamwork and camaraderie within the student body is balanced against individual excellence and achievement within the Sport, Cultural and Academic programmes offered. There is a delicate balance to be struck between nurturing each individual student and encouraging leadership and independence. At Merrifield, staff and parents work together to achieve this in the raising and encouraging of our students, each of whom matter, and all of whom are cared for and urged to reach their own potentials.
