Choosing the right school for your daughter is a very important decision, with many factors to take into consideration: what the school is able to offer her and where she will be happy and able to thrive are likely to be high on your agenda. A good school means different things to different people. For some it is the academic outcomes of a school that define its excellence. For others it is the breadth of the school’s curricular and extracurricular activities. Many people are interested in the facilities a school has to offer, while for others it is the software that matters – the ethos and values of the school. Choosing the right school for your daughter is not easy. We aim to help you through the whole process, making it as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

Visit Us

We strongly encourage interested parents and students to visit the school and see what makes life at Potch Girls High so special. Visiting us will provide you with the opportunity to see the school in action, meet staff and students and have your questions answered. Girls generally enter in Grade 8. Sometimes, places may become available in the higher grades- the admissions office will be able to advise on the availability thereof.  Please contact Mrs Jagals at our Admission Office: by emailing or telephonically on 0182943228



If you decide that you would like to apply for a place at our school, you need to complete and submit the online application form. Applications open 1 March and close 31 July. Please ensure that all the required documentation is emailed to the admissions office after you have submitted the online application.  
The High School for Girls Potchefstroom prides itself on offering high quality education at an affordable price. Potch Girls High has an inclusive fees policy which covers the cost of tuition, meals (for Boarders), core educational materials such as text books and a range of curricular and extra-curricular activities. Fees are reviewed by the Board of Governors annually. For the most recent schedule of fees kindly contact the school or see Downloads. 

Open Mornings 

Potch Girls High's "Open Days" are always popular for prospective pupils and their parents. We offer two open days annually. This year they will be held on the 21st March and the 6th June. Please contact us for the times and details. Although it is possible to appreciate a school from what you see on the website, we would recommend that you visit us to fully appreciate the all round, holistic education that we would offer your daughter.
Open Days provide you with the opportunity to meet the Headmistress, Staff and of course the learners. It is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and most importantly enable you to find out first-hand what our school can offer your child. You will also get to enjoy the facilities and visit the hostel. Please note, attendance at open days does not guarantee acceptance or admission.
We also welcome families for both individual and small group appointments. A typical visit will include an individual school and hostel tour with the Marketing Officer. We encourage you to bring your daughter with you and look forward to meeting you both.
