Welcome

Welcome to the Wynberg Girls’ High School website. Founded in 1884, we are a school which embraces change and actively prepares our young women to take their place in a democratic South Africa and throughout the world. Our motto “Honour before Honours” emphasises the ethos of our school which encourages girls first to be a person of integrity, before seeking outward accolades and rewards.

In the shadow of the famous mountain in Cape Town, Wynberg Girls’ High School offers excellent facilities, a technology-rich teaching environment and well-qualified and inspirational staff members.

Your journey through the website will reveal the commitment and equal attention given to the four foundation pillars: Academic, Culture, Service and Sport. Girls are encouraged to participate and, through their involvement in an extensive academic and extra-mural programme, learn and practise the skills which equip them to make a difference in their world.

Our school is special because it is a truly South African school reflecting the rich diversity of the cultures of our country. We are a girls’ school and we put girls centre-stage. We encourage them to reach their academic potential and, with vertical tutor groups to encourage inter-grade relations and house spirit, and support from an extensive counselling department, we celebrate the graduation of emotionally intelligent young adults.

Enjoy your visit to our website. Please get in touch with us and come and visit – we would love to show you around this very special part of Cape Town.
