Westville is a suburb in Durban in South Africa, which is situated 20 km inland from the Durban CBD. The town was laid out on the farm Westville (named in honour of Martin West, the first British lieutenant-governor of Natal) and formed in 1847. It developed from a settlement of German immigrants who arrived in 1848, and was proclaimed a borough in 1956.Westville is also central to several main townships, namely Cato Manor, Claremont and Chesterville. Considered one of Durban's wealthier suburbs, Westville has in recent years been the target of a high concentration of house break-ins (burglaries) and car hijackings. This has led to many streets in the suburbs being gated by private security companies.EducationSchools situated in Westville include Westville Boys' High School, Westville Girls' High School, Atholl Heights Primary School, Berea West Junior Primary School, Berea West Senior Primary School, Pitlochry Primary School, Westville Senior Primary and the Deutsche Schule Durban. Higher education centres include a 2-square-kilometre campus of University of KwaZulu-Natal (formerly the University of Durban-Westville) and Varsity College (Westville campus).
