Northwood’s private boarding establishment, Bruyns House, was established to accommodate boys from outside the immediate North Durban community who will make a meaningful contribution to the school.  Mutual respect and self-discipline are encouraged at Bruyns House, which prides itself on providing an environment that is conducive to both learning and all-round achievement.

 The Jubilee Room

The School in conjunction with the Old Boys, raised funds in 1999 to build a Functions Room for use by both the school and the Old Boys. The Jubilee Room was opened in December by three former pupils. Ken Reardon, Warren van Zyl and Shaun Pollock. A number of our international sports stars’ blazers and jerseys hang proudly on the walls.

This facility is open on Saturdays during sports seasons and has also been used for a number of Old Boys’ Reunions. Hiring of the venue for functions has also been popular as it can seat 100 people. Any queries regarding the hiring of the venue can be made by contacting the school on Tel:  (031) 5636501.

Northwood Tuck Shop

The upper and lower tuck shops are open from 8 until 2.30 Monday to Friday and on Saturdays during sports events. Special dietary requirements are catered for and a pre-order system is available for parents.
