Grey College provides a secure and positive school environment in which Grey boys can experience success and a sense of belonging. Parallel medium education is one of the most important benefits of Grey College whereby Afrikaans and English speaking boys receive tuition in either Afrikaans or English, in separate classrooms. This ensures that each language group maintains its own identity and cultural values. On the school grounds, in the hostels, at assembly and during extra-mural activities boys are exposed to both languages, and regular interaction ensures respect for one another. A total commitment to respect for the individual, commitment to excellence, loyalty to Grey traditions, respect for the environment, and a Christian educational philosophy and practice are the corner stones of our educational ideal.
