About Us

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.
