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.

Jeppe Girls participate in a number of academic programmes, competitions and Olympiads each year.

The school enters and excels in the following Olympiads:

  • English
  • Afrikaans
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Science and Life Science
  • Consumer Studies
  • Accounting

English Olympiad : The 2013 competition attracted more than 7800 entries from high schools across Southern Africa. The theme was “Whose Truth is it anyway?”  Four of our learners –  Nikita Boshoff, Amy-Leigh Braaf, Elizabeth Gondwe and Kelly Ho – were awarded Silver certificates.
Afrikaans Olympiad : We have a phenomenal response from learners wishing to write the ATKV (Afrikaans Taal en Kultuur Vereniging) Olympiad each year. Grade 8 and 9 learners write the Junior Olympiad and Grade 10, 11 and 12 girls write the Senior Olympiad.
National Science and Life Science Olympiad : Girls enter these competitions voluntarily, they are encouraged to participate for their own development. Each year learners do exceptionaly well.
Tour de Maths: The school also participates in Tour de Maths with private schools. Tour de Maths is a mathematical competition in which 16 schools across Johannesburg and Pretoria take part. A group of Grade 9 to Grade 11 learners are chosen to participate each year.
