GHS Potchefstroom

Educating girls is a great responsibility and privilege. Our mission is to ensure that every girl becomes the best that she can be. Stories of individual challenge, persistence and achievement are testimony to the philosophy of Girls High and I am extremely proud to be the Headmistress here.

Choosing a high school is one of the most important decisions a parent has to make. The school environment and the standard of education will impact greatly on your daughter’s future and who she will become. During her high school years, a significant transformation takes place as a girl becomes a young woman. As your daughter emerges from Primary School, full of promise and enthusiasm, her talents and individual qualities are expanding and her character is beginning to flourish. Above all, you will want her to remain free from harm in a happy environment where she is able to discover all that is best within her. We aim to create an exceptional education for girls that is respected and admired by others, but ultimately will make a real difference to your daughter’s life.

At Girls High we offer the very best educational experience for girls and we are proud of our academic record. This is the result of hard work by our girls and dedicated educators. We believe that Girls High is a wonderful place in which to learn and that under the right conditions, every girl can achieve extraordinary things. We recognise that every girl is different and we make sure that she is the best she can be. Our girls are inspired to achieve their goals and every effort is made to encourage them to take advantage of the opportunities available to them, in both the classroom or in the wide range of extra-mural activities on offer.

If you are a parent of a daughter currently at our school, we thank you for entrusting us with that job. If you’re an “Old Girl”, we encourage you to stay in touch, we’d love to hear from you. If you are considering sending your daughter to Girls High School, please come and see the school for yourself, meet our girls and staff and talk to me about my vision for the school. I look forward to your visit and warmly welcome you to become part of the Girls High Family, where we all work together to encourage and celebrate the many achievements of Potch Girls High’s learners and educators.
