Graeme College
Origin & Meaning

Why Graeme College instead of Graham College of Grahamstown? With eight headmasters educated in Scotland, there was probably little alternative but for the College to be historically correct. Colonel John Graham, after whom the city was named, was a descendent of the Graeme clan...

Our boys know that to be successful means the ability to achieve one’s aims and goals in life. It goes beyond having high grades or participating in class.

Academic excellence entails walking the extra mile to achieve the set goals, avoiding any distractions and being on the tracks until one gets to the finishing line.

“A good teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops” —

Henry Adams' Our teachers know how to bring out the best in their students, but it’s not magic and it’s not just about popularity, it’s because they believe in every single student.

We involve our pupils in many community outreach programs. They are encouraged to take part in the President's Awards, Interact and First Aid.

These programs' are designed to equip pupils with essential skills and instill in them an understanding of the social problems we face as a community and a country.

We have recently upgraded our Library facilities at the school and it has become a quiet place for students to read or do their homework.

Graeme is focused on maintaining a facility that promotes reading in the school. We train pupils to become school librarians and the library is open daily.

Grade 6 Project

“The Earth is what we all have in common.”- Wendell Berry.

Local matches against St Andrews College

It was just incredible to be part of inter-school cricket fixtures again. This might sound ridiculous, but the excitement on the face while talking to a 1st XI player on Saturday just seemed so far out of place. It was the type of excitement you see on Christmas morning - I think we underestimate how much these boys miss their sport. That excitement was such a blessing with regards to the actual results - the boys weren't caught up in the pressure of results in a derby fixture. They allowed them to play with freedom, and they were brilliant.
