Durban Girls’ High School was established in 1882, which makes us one of the oldest girls’ schools in South Africa. Throughout our proud history we have been committed to providing a holistic learning environment and we are now officially recognised as a School of Excellence and Influence by the Alan Gray Orbis Foundation.

Our academic focus is based on the strong work ethic of both staff and learners. This is enhanced by state of the art technology and fully equipped venues which provide outstanding teaching resources. Our co-curricular programme covers over fifty sporting and cultural activities which are offered on both a competitive and social level. We actively promote healthy living through our wellness programme.

Our motivated educators not only facilitate learning but also instil respect for a sound value system. We are fully committed to the development of every girl in a relevant, safe and caring, multi-cultural environment. We nurture individuality and encourage creativity.

We offer many leadership opportunities and have embarked on a leadership programme offering all girls the chance of participation in courses where leadership skills are discovered and put into practice.

Durban Girls’ High is a school of choice and we invite you to join us on your journey to success.
