Founded in 1997, Merrifield Preparatory School and College continues to grow in stature year by year and has established itself as the leading independent provider of pre-primary, preparatory and secondary education in the Buffalo City region.

Situated in a beautiful, secure outdoor setting, the wooden cabin-type classrooms and the natural environment create a wholesome backdrop for the vibrancy and enthusiasm so characteristic of the atmosphere of the school.

The school’s motto “Astra Petentes”, which means “Reach for the Stars”, is aimed at guiding our pupils to realise their full potential in all aspects of their lives. With limited class numbers, Merrifield offers excellent academic tuition, and places equal emphasis on academic, sporting, cultural, social and spiritual development.

Merrifield prides itself in offering a caring, nurturing and supportive school environment where the individual attributes of every child are recognised and celebrated. The school has over 600 pupils enrolled currently and caters for all grades from Grade 000 to Grade 12.
