Description

St Alban's College is a private boarding school/day school for boys situated in the suburb of Lynnwood Glen in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa. It was founded in 1963 by Anton Murray.AboutSt Alban's College is a young Anglican boys' school. It came into existence on 1 February 1963 with a total strength of 37 boys and 3 masters. It now has 580 boys and 43 teachers plus an array of support staff.The founder-Headmaster, Anton Murray, was a South African cricketer who sought to maintain the best traditions of liberal education. So an emphasis on well-rounded development prevails, and games such as cricket, rugby and hockey have always figured prominently in its history.St Alban's has pioneered the way in important areas: opening its doors to boys of colour before it was legal to do so, and providing educational upliftment programmes for disadvantaged members of the community.Mr Murray devoted twenty years of his life to the school. Mr Paul Marsh was headmaster during a transitional phase lasting for four years. Mr Ronnie Todd introduced many radical changes during his ten years as headmaster, and following his position as headmaster went on to open St Peter's College. The fourth headmaster was Mr Grant Nupen, who was one of those 37 pioneering Foundation Scholars in 1963 and went on to become the first Head Boy, a distinction he held for three years.Under the direction of the current headmaster, Tom Hamilton, the school has become well-established. The school celebrated its 50th Birthday in 2013.
