The Diocesan College, or Bishops as it is more commonly known, is an independent, all-boys school situated in the suburb of Rondebosch in Cape Town, South Africa. The school was established in 1849 by Robert Gray, Bishop of Cape Town.
The college is situated in Campground Road at the main campus, and a small portion of this land is used for the pre-preparatory school. The Preparatory School is situated in Fir Road, Rondebosch close to the college campus.
The college has eight houses: Founders, School and White are the boarding houses, and Birt, Gray, Kidd, Mallett and Ogilvie are for day-scholars. Each house has about 70 to 100 students, and is governed by a House Director and an Assistant Director. Furthermore, each house is equipped with a common room, kitchen, study room, Matric room, quad, dining hall, and offices for the Head of House and House Directors. The preparatory school has four houses: Van der Bijl (for boarders and day-boys), Bramley, Brooke and Charlton.
The institution also offers a dynamic and global alumni organisation, the OD (Old Diocesan) Union which has over 5000 active members in 28 branches around the world.
