Virginia Preparatory School opened its doors for the first time on 21 January 1958 with 102 pupils. Since then the number on the roll has increased to to 563 in 2013. The school caters for children from Grade 4 to Grade 7 and traditionally serves the communities of Glenashley, Virginia, La Lucia, Glenhills, Glen Anil and Sunningdale.

At present there are six classes in each grade. The average class size is 26. There are 31 academic staff (24 class teachers and seven specialists), four secretaries and 11 support staff. All of whom are committed to making Virginia the primary school of choice in Durban North.

We also have three Academic Support classes (Grade 4, 5 & 6). Each class has only 12 pupils and a highly qualified teacher.

Classroom Environment
Our classrooms, which are all air conditioned, are also bright and breezy with lots of windows and sliding doors.

Classrooms are equipped with whiteboards, a computer, data projector and a cabled internet link. Each class also has its own email address.
