The opportunity to educate a child in one school, from Grade PR to Matric, is an ideal to which many parents and educationalists aspire. Marist Brothers, which offers an excellent education, fine facilities, devoted staff and a Christian environment, makes a single school education possible.
Marist Brothers Linmeyer has its roots in the Marist tradition of the Catholic Church. Founded in France by St. Marcellin Champagnat in 1817, the Marist Brothers are internationally recognised as part of a vibrant global education system providing well-rounded, complete education to their students, ensuring that they are equipped for the demands of the future.
In 1889, Marist Brothers Schools established the ﬁrst boys’ school in Johannesburg in Koch Street and we take pride in acknowledging our humble beginnings.
The ethos of Marist Brothers, with nearly two centuries of experience in the ﬁeld of holistic education, permeates every aspect of Marist life. In a family atmosphere of Christian love and care, Marist Brothers seeks to enhance the religious, intellectual, physical and social development of each student.
Special emphasis is placed on sound moral standards, together with self-discipline, justice and service to the community. It remains our aim that each individual at Marist Brothers Linmeyer will come to know God within an environment where all people, irrespective of cultural, language or religious diﬀerences, are respected and appreciated.
The provision of dynamic education in a caring environment that fosters learning and personal growth is achieved through the relationships forged between students, their families, the community and the school. Marist students and parents speak with pride of the Marist family and the unifying force it exerts on each member in order to enhance the closeness of our true Marist bond.
The management team at Marist Brothers Linmeyer is pro-active and goal orientated. Careful planning for the future ensures that we remain a “school of choice” in the southern Johannesburg region, and that we enter the future as an inspirational educational institution for the broader community.
With change being the only constant in most parts of the world, Marist Brothers Linmeyer remains part of the stable and secure Marist tradition of Catholic education and service.
We invite you to join us in this tradition which encompasses the pursuit of excellence within the spirit of true Christian Fellowship.
Marist Brothers Linmeyer endeavors to make use of contemporary facilities, which are constantly being upgraded in line with educational trends. Impressive specialist blocks have been built on the campus to accommodate the education needs for the future. Our modern centres provide learners with the opportunity to access skills training vital in the modern business world.
A diverse resource centre boasts the following areas: Conference Room, Auditorium, Amphitheatre, Primary School Library, High School Library, Picture Book Section, Reference Section, Teacher’s Reference Section, Parental Resources Section, Computer Room and Audio-Visual Room.
An up-to-date Pre School with a Therapy Centre caters for our Reception Phase. Spacious sports fields, tennis and basketball courts, as well as an eight – lane, 25m swimming pool enhance the abundance of fine facilities provided.
Our Marcellin Jubilee Centre houses our Aquatic and Music Centre. The heated 25m pool, only 1m deep, serves as the perfect facility to sustain our ‘learn to swim’ programme for juniors during the year, and assists selected top swimmers with their winter training programme. A variety of musical elements such as piano, guitar and drumming etc are available in our Music Centre.

Outreach: Each grade in the Pre-School and Primary School selects an Outreach project for the year. We encourage our learners to become active participants and to support their chosen Outreach programme. This is done in the hope that, by the end of Primary School, an increased awareness of the world around them will be created and that the importance of their contribution later in life will become evident.
In High School, we encourage our learners to get involved in community projects. A long-standing group, the co-workers, visits orphanages, old age homes and shelters on a regular basis, and strives to improve the situation of the people they come into contact with by supplying food, clothing and Christmas gifts. In addition to sharing our resources, these projects help the learners to grow and feel a sense of accomplishment and pride within themselves and for our school
