OUR SCHOOL

Principal

WELCOME TO

REDDAM HOUSE UMHLANGA


Umhlanga College, an initiative of Durban Girls’ College, was founded in 2003 and, under the direction of the Board of Directors and Executive Management, flourished into an extraordinary success story as an independent, co-educational institution. In September 2016, Umhlanga College joined the world-renowned Reddam House group of schools.

Set on what was formerly Burnside Estate on the Umhlanga Ridge, the School’s grounds are nestled amongst magnificent indigenous trees and the rolling hills of the Kwa-Zulu Natal coast. Its tranquil setting is ideal for learning and outdoor activities.
