Creating the thought leaders of tomorrow

Honour Before Honours

Wynberg Girls' High School is a values-based, eco and socially conscious learning environment encouraging the development of confident and unique women who strive for excellence." Jennifer Wallace – Principal

Welcome to
Wynberg Girls’ High School

At Wynberg Girls’ High School, our learners are conscious of their connectedness, whether this is thinking and acting sustainably and in an environmentally responsible manner, becoming part of a variety of care-groups and outreach programmes who support the physical, educational, or emotional needs of others in our broader community, or serving the school in a multitude of ways, our learners understand their value and the value of others.

Welcome from the Principal

Dr Jennifer Wallace

A warm welcome to Wynberg Girls’ High School! Founded in 1884, we are proudly recognised as one of South Africa’s preeminent public schools for girls, and all who consistently identify as girls.  Wynberg Girls’ High School embraces a values-driven approach to education, with our identified core values of Integrity, Inclusivity, Courage, Accountability, Respect, and Empathy forming the foundation of our approach to who we are, all we do, and what we stand for. 

We believe in providing holistic opportunities for exploration, growth, and development through our wide range of activities offered in each of our four Pillars (Academics, Culture, Service and Sport) in addition to our two Portfolios (Communication and Sustainability).

On the academic front, we are firmly established within the annual Top Twenty Schools of Excellence in the Western Cape by means of our Grade 12 National Senior Certificate results, as awarded by the Western Cape Education Department. We recognise that in addition to cognitive engagement and curiosity, learning is an emotional experience. As such, we believe that by creating a happy and inclusive environment in which all can find a sense of belonging, and providing the physical infrastructure to support our teaching practices, our learners will be inspired to challenge themselves, and each other, in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding.

It is both an honour and a privilege to be the Principal of this wonderful school. I hope that whether you are a learner, an educator, a parent, and Alumnae, or a visitor, you are as inspired by this place as I am and that together we will continue to produce young women and leaders of character who will make a significant and positive mark on this world.
