Established in 1973, under the proprietorship of the late Buds Nirhoo, Anchorlite College was the pioneer institution to open its doors to a multicultural society, maintaining discipline at its highest level. This legacy has been passed down to his daughter, Mrs. S.D Sewrajh, who has re-established the Anchorlite brand shortly after the sudden decease of Mr Nirhoo.
Today, Anchorlite continues to deliver relevant, affordable and recognised Qualifications across its branches that will lead to employment and promotions within the working environment.
Over the years, Anchorlite College has become a household name amongst various communities, as it continues to grow from strength to strength, setting standards, and paving the way for private education. Anchorlite Independent School, in the interim, has undergone several structural changes, creating direction and vision for the fourth coming years. Further Education and Training (FET) Grade 11 and 12 School curriculums, and have successfully taken FET learners through the process of activities, continued assessments and final examinations.
Since opening its doors to equal education for all race groups, Anchorlite has earned the respect of the entire nation, including the South African Government of National Unity when it came into power. This gave rise to an education division for grade 12 and, a Further Education and Training division of National N4, N5 and N6 Diploma courses. The hands-on training approach gives our students the opportunity to work directly within industry, trade and commerce and our variety of courses give students many choices.
