School Ethos Forti Nihil Difficilius – Nothing is too difficult for the brave The school’s aim is to create well-rounded, enquiring young women who will be able to think critically and engage constructively with others. Girls are encouraged to contribute to the community and value their role in South African society. The entire school took part in the 2015 67blankets for Nelson Mandela campaign, making 695 blankets. Matric learners are seen here with Leanne Manas of SABC Morning Live at the Union Buildings where a Guinness World Record was achieved for the largest crochet blanket in the world (3377m²). We have continued with the 67blankets for Nelson Mandela campaign and have assisted in them breaking 4 world records.

The focus of Jeppe High School for Girls is primarily on academics. The school endeavours to ensure that each pupil achieves her academic potential while engaging in a range of sporting, cultural and social activities.

Our staff are dedicated to teaching and to the school and with their enthusiasm and loyalty, encourage independent thought and an appreciation of learning amongst the pupils.

Jeppe High School for Girls has consistently been in the top three public schools in the district and has continued to produce excellent matric results. The Matric Class of 2020 again achieved a 100% pass rate and all of our learners qualified to continue with tertiary education, with 86% of them attaining the requirements for entrance to a bachelor’s degree at university.

We also gratefully acknowledge the generous annual grant from the Epoch and Optima Trusts since 2009 to enhance Maths education at the school.
