Wynberg offers an incredibly wide array of subject choices for our Grade 10’s. All of these subjects are high credit subjects for university entrance. There are four core (compulsory) subjects:

  • Home Language – English
  • First Additional Language – Afrikaans or Xhosa
  • Mathematics
  • Life Orientation

In previous years, students were also then required to pick three more elective subjects, offered in certain combinations, from the following list:

  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Engineering
  • Graphic Design
  • Geography
  • History
  • Information Technology
  • Life Sciences
  • Music
  • Physical Sciences
  • Visual Arts

This year, we are also offering three additional timetabled options: 

  • Support Mathematics
  • Electronics
  • Study Period

The most important change, however, is that our students now have the chance to take four elective subjects. There are a huge number of benefits to this – some examples include:

  • Boys can now leave WBHS with eight fully taught subjects rather than seven, giving them a competitive advantage. 
  • Only the best subject marks will count in terms of reporting.
  • Boys who struggle with Mathematics can now have double the amount of teaching time on the subject.
  • Those who cannot decide between two subjects, such as History and Geography for example, now get to do both.
  • The additional subject can be dropped after the mid-year examinations or at the end of the year if the student decides to.
  • Study periods will be used by the student to focus on different areas of the curriculum as and when they need to.
