A lot of local Johannesburg folk send their children to boarding schools out of town once they reach high school. There is a huge choice but I have to mention Hilton as my husband is an old boy and its big rival Michaelhouse, both boys schools are in the Midlands (not the Midlands you would think of in the UK) with both schools being set on huge beautiful estates. If you have seen the film Spud (which you should) featuring John Cleese then you will recognise Michaelhouse as it was filmed there. Not to leave the girls out, St Annes in Hilton!!
