At Wynberg Boys’ High, we understand that a boy’s experiences at school greatly influence the man he will become. We believe that a thorough and well-rounded education is paramount in providing all students with strong foundations to build upon for the remainder of their lives. This is why we place such importance on the four pillars of Wynberg excellence – academic, sport, service, and culture – all strengthened by our Tutor system within a responsive pastoral ethos. Life at Wynberg Boys’ High School is rich, varied, exciting, and enormously rewarding.
