Welcome


Welcome to our Atholton Primary School website!


We hope you will find it informative and that it will provide you with all the information you are seeking.



Atholton Primary School is the only Public School in Umhlanga Rocks. The school serves an area along the coastal belt from the Umdloti River in the north, to just north of La Lucia in the south and westward including Prestondale, Somerset Park and Mount Edgecombe.


Atholton has a proud historical record dating back to 1912 when it was established in the Mount Edgecombe area and served the families who were working primarily in the sugar industry. Our Sports Houses, Campbell, Hulett, Marshall and Morewood bear testimony to this.


The school has transformed and grown over the years and has adapted to the changing demographics of the community inhabiting Umhlanga Rocks where we are now situated.


We are a happy school with a warm family atmosphere in which our boys and girls feel safe and are educated in a nurturing and supportive environment. Each child is unique and their holistic development is carefully monitored and promoted.


These characteristics and the values which we stand for have made Atholton a very popular school to which parents are happy to send their children each day.
