WGHS Hostel

In the hostel, learners will develop invaluable personal, social and leadership skills – for life.

We offer Weekly boarding ONLY at Wynberg Girls’ High School. Our hostel, Waterloo House, is situated within the school grounds to ensure that boarders have complete access to all our school facilities and activities. The hostel can house approximately seventy girls from Grade Eight to Grade Twelve.


Hostel learners have single bedrooms although there are a few rooms available for sharing. The rooms are quaint, wooden-floored and fully furnished. The atmosphere of the hostel is lively, modern and upbeat, and there is a strong sense of unity and warmth amongst the learners.

Waterloo House outsources its catering management, cleaning coordination and procurement to a professional food and services solutions company, Feedem Pitseng. Feedem looks at the youth of today and, in consultation with dietitians, provides nutritionally balanced meals daily for active youths.
