Welcome to Graeme College

Graeme College, founded in 1873, caters for just over 650 boys from Grade 00 to Grade 12, and also offers an Enrichment Year. Graeme College offers its students the rare opportunity of beginning and completing their entire school career in the same setting. Because of the single structure, there is a unique atmosphere at the school.

Graeme College is a traditional boys-only school with a rich heritage. Emphasis is laid on commitment, hard work, involvement, sportsmanship and the positive development of all who pass through the school’s doors. The College's motto “Virtute et Opera” (through courage and hard work) is the underpinning value encouraged for all activities.

At Graeme we attempt to foster an atmosphere where respect for the rights of all people are paramount, while encouraging individual boys to appreciate that they have certain duties and obligations to the society of which they are part.

Our learners are very important to us and we are privileged to see them grow from small pre-school learners into strapping young men ready to take their place in society.  There are so many opportunities given at this amazing school and, ultimately, it is the wish of all staff to see the men of Graeme College striving to make the best of these in their quest to reach their full potential.

Marais Field Changing Facility

Graeme College currently does not have any change room facilities on Marais Field, which is extensively used during Summer and obvious Winter fixtures.

This would also include toilet facilities for supporters, as well as a tuckshop area and a braai facility. Currently parents put up an ‘army tent’ each Saturday to braai and sell goods. The main focus though is an area for home and visiting teams to change.

It is possibly the most needed facility on our campus. It will make an enormous difference to supporters and boys of Graeme College.

It was a mixed weekend for the Graeme 1st XI. St Andrew's College outgunned the Graeme side with an impressive T20 performance on Friday. It was good preparation for both teams as they are still trying to qualify for the CSA T20 Finals. St Andrews beat Graeme by a very comfortable 140 runs before going on to win the Eastern Cape final against Grey. Nick Barlow was massively instrumental scoring a rare T20 century. Graeme face Hudson Park in the final of the Eastern Cape Focus School section on Friday.

On Saturday, Graeme hosted the Alice u19 Regional Performance Centre, which turned out to be a superb game. Batting first, Graeme scored 194/ 8 after their 50 overs. It was a decent score but kept both teams very interested in the result. Aaron Richardson top scored for Graeme with 47, while Raven Bush scored a valuable 43 not out at the end of the innings. Sese Tumuyaza (3 for 28) and Tayi Bosch (2 for 21) picked up the wickets for the Alice RPC, but it was the spinners who applied most of the pressure. In combination Lwando Shoba and Longeziwe Sgila conceded only 52 runs in 20 overs, and also picked up two wickets.

Sgila got the Alice RPC off to the perfect start and batted for the majority of the innings; his 56 set the perfect platform for the visitors. It was the Graeme spinners who managed to claw their side into the game as well. Garwin Dampies and Aaron Richardson combined for 17 overs, claiming 4 crucial wickets and conceded 64 runs. Butsha Mfazwe (34) put the Alice RPC in a very strong position and at 170/ 6, the last roll of the dice for Graeme was the experience of their two left arm quicks. Lakhanya Sam stepped up and removed Sese Tamuyaza (27) and Buhle Shoba (22), although both dismissals needed some superb catching from the Graeme fielders. Sam was absolutely outstanding on the day, picking up 3 for 40. That swung the pressure completely on to the visitors, and Siphesihle Madlongolwana finished the innings in clinical fashion for Graeme, picking up 3 for 35. Graeme managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a tense 19 run victory, with the visitors losing 4 wickets for 14 runs.

Only the u15B team managed to get a win over St Andrews on the weekend,while the Graeme Junior sides fared much better against Westering. The visitors though managed to sneak an exciting one wicket win over Graeme in the u13A game. Graeme claimed good wins in the u9, u11A, u11B and u13B matches.
