Lynford is a co-educational, multi-cultural independent school situated in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands of South Africa.

We offer a wholesome education for children from Grade RR to Seven with a conscious slant towards educating in our incredible outdoor environment. Lynford is able to offer a variety of learning opportunities in extraordinarily beautiful surroundings. Our environment is therefore at the very core of what we do and developing a sense of responsibility towards the protection of our environment is a focal point in our school. We are proud to have been awarded our Green Flag Status and we have a very comprehensive Enviro Programme running in each grade. Whether exploring the streams, climbing a tree or studying the endangered Blue Swallow, Lynford offers opportunity for everyone.

At Lynford, we strive to provide a multitude of life-shaping experiences that will allow our children to leave us as compassionate, confident and capable contributors to society. We are a registered non-profit organisation (097-224-NPO) and all of our funds are used to create the high level of education for which we have become known.

“the quality of teaching and learning has emerged as outstanding, gauged against best international practice, Lynford is indeed a superb school. The professionalism, expertise and enterprising approaches of the highly committed staff; the pupil’s responses to their teachers and eagerness to make the most of the wonderful learning opportunities provided, and the parents’ enthusiastic support, in many ways, characterize Lynford.”
~ Dr Manfred Schroenn, IQAA report
