We are non-denominational and are multi-cultural - promoting tolerance, acceptance and understanding of the varied cultures within the school and South Africa.
Bateleur College was founded by two families, the Roux family and the Greenway family.
Mr. Greenway, of Scottish origin, was our Founding Head Master. The Greenway family have a strong link to the Education sector with both Mr and Mrs. Greenway having been actively involved in Education their entire careers.

The Roux family own Bateleur College and are active in the management of the school. The family comes from the Corporate sector, but have a long history of educators in the family.
