A message from the College Principal

Greetings and welcome to the website of St Henry’s Marist College!

I do hope that you will enjoy your visit to our website and you will find it of value. Our site offers a gateway to our school and we hope that it will be of value to you.

Of course, you are more than welcome to visit the campus in person. Please feel free to book a time for a campus tour, to meet with our Admissions team or with myself. We would love to show you the campus and provide you with an opportunity to ask questions and explore St Henry’s and what it offers. In the interim, though, please make use of our website to discover more about the College.

What I hope that you discover is that St Henry’s has been part of the educational landscape in Durban for ninety years. The College has an important legacy and heritage but as I hope will also be evident, it has built on this legacy and continues to provide an education of distinction amongst other schools and educational institutions in the greater Durban area.

So, in identifying a school for your child or if you want to simply find out more, our website is a great place to start!

With best wishes,

Dr Stephen Leech
College Principal

Religious Ethos

A specific Marist ethos has evolved in the light of the life and philosophy of the Marist Founder, St Marcellin Champagnat.


Family Spirit

There is a place for everyone. A sense of belonging is fostered.



Spending time with young people provides opportunities to be part of their lives, build up relationships and support them.


Love of Work

To foster the value of work and respect for different kinds of work.



Being straightforward, genuine, humble and modest.


Mary’s Way

To follow Jesus in the way of Mary, someone who was open to new possibilities in her life.



Outreach is vital aspect of life at St Henry’s. Awareness of the needs of others is at the heart of Marist education and many opportunities are provided to contribute to efforts to alleviate the plight of those in dire circumstances.

The School Song

“Non Nobis Domine” is an adaptation of Psalm 115

Non Nobis Domine, Domine
Non Nobis Domine
Sed Nomine, Sed Nomine
Tua da Gloriam.

Not to us O Lord, not to us,
Not to us, O Lord,
But to your name, your holy name,
Be glory ever given.

Non Nobis Domine, Domine
Non Nobis Domine
Sed Nomine, Sed Nomine
Tua da Gloriam.
Tua da Gloriam
