“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” – Kofi Anan
The High School for Girls’ family is especially proud of her annual academic prowess. Our results are exceptional, year after year. In 2018 we produced a 100% pass rate, a university entrance rate of over 89%. And from our 103 candidates, a total of 216 distinctions was achieved. Over and above this, 20 girls had averages over 80%. But there is more… We are particularly proud of the fact that Maiar Ahmed was placed first in the country, and both she and our previous head girl, Karin Schutte, were the top language performers in the North West Province. We do have a lot to boast about!!! And this is indeed a testament to our motto: hard work brings true joy, but also to the fact that quality teaching and learning takes place at this school.
Girls High follows the National Curriculum of South Africa, and writes the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations. The results achieved by our girls enable them to study at a variety of universities around the world.
Girls High has excellent resources, to prepare and encourage young ladies who embrace independent, critical and creative decision-making. To this end, we offer the following subjects in Grades 10 to 12:
- English Home Language
- Afrikaans First Additional Language
- Mathematics / Mathematical Literacy
- Physical Science
- Life Sciences
- Dramatic Arts
- Visual Art
- Business Studies
- Consumer Studies
- Computer Application Technology (CAT)
- Life Orientation
Remedial and Enrichment Programmes are in place to cater to our learners’ individual needs. Our Grade 9s write an interest and aptitude test to identify a tailored choice of subjects for Grades 10 to 12.
Our educators are professional, and leaders in their fields. They use a growth mind-set, embrace a blended learning approach, with the help of technology, and understand the nuances of teaching and relating to girls.
