The Four Pillars of Wynberg
Life at Wynberg
Wynberg Boys’ High School is one of the oldest and most prestigious boys’ schools in the country. Throughout its history Wynberg has been one of the leading schools in South Africa and it continues to provide a stimulating all-round education, coupled with academic excellence.
Wynberg is a modern, forward thinking school, passionate about progress and embracing new opportunities within teaching and learning. Tradition forms a key part of our schools philosophy, but it is our willingness to innovate which has allowed us to thrive for almost two centuries.
Offering an excellent range of sports and activities programmes, we enable our boys to identify and develop their own skills and strengths within a supportive environment.
A Foundation of Knowledge
Our four pillars of Academics, Sports, Culture and Service shape the Wynberg experience. Our commitment to exceptional education is manifest in the holistic experience received by learners at Wynberg. By providing a wide range of opportunities for learners both inside and outside of the classroom learners are able to develop their own skills and capabilities within a structured and supportive environment.
Becoming a Wynberg Man
Men of Wynberg are proudly South African, and supportive of their brothers in the endless chain. Committed to our constitution, they support the right of everyone to dignity, equality and education. They are proud of their school and uphold its traditions and values, wearing the uniform with honor. They understand that respect is key, and carry this with them throughout their lives.
We are passionate about providing exceptional education, both today and for centuries to come. To continue our traditions and to build the base for future achievements, we look to our community for significant support in this endeavour. Find out how you can make a difference.
