Durban High School has perpetuated a ‘Heritage of Excellence’ for over 140 years, being Durban’s oldest school.
DHS leads boys on their journey to become men and take their place in the world. Each boy is as unique as his journey, and DHS is proud to be part of the making of both history and the future.
More than just a high school, DHS becomes a way of life for many of its learners.
Blackmore House is a home for some 130 boarders at DHS. With a proud record stretching over 100 years, the House is often spoken of as the backbone of the School. Discipline and high levels of good manners are the foundation stones of the House. The staff of Blackmore attach a high priority to ensuring that the boys are focussed on doing well in all aspects of School life – academic, sport, cultural, leadership and service. Their needs are well catered for with excellent food, computer facilities, TV, audio-visual facilities and comfortable dormitories, with a maximum of 12 boys.
The boys go home for most weekends and may return on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Any parent or guardian can be assured that their son is in good hands in Blackmore House while he enjoys the camaraderie for which the House is famous. He is part of a caring, structured and disciplined environment where he is constantly adopting valuable life skills in order to survive in an ever-changing society. Blackmore House will continue to prepare young men to face the future.

A boarding school provides education for pupils who live on the premises, as opposed to a day school. The word “boarding” is used in the sense of “room and board” i.e., lodging and meals. As they have existed for many centuries, and now extend across many countries, their function and ethos varies greatly.
Fewer Distractions. Boarding school students can focus better on their studies because television, video games, phones and other distractors are limited. These young scholars usually perform better academically because they live in an environment that is conducive to learning.
