Founded in 1964, Westville Girls’ High School is consistently ranked among the top public girls’ schools in South Africa. Nestled in Durban’s suburb of Westville, the school boasts impressive facilities for its learners, allowing our young ladies to pursue a full programme of academics and extra-curricular activities.
We pride ourselves on our high academic standards and our approach towards developing well-rounded young ladies, who embody our motivating phrase of “Dignity in Diversity”.
Our unbroken 100% pass rate since 1991 has placed us each year as the best performing school in the Pinetown district. We have maintained a Bachelor pass rate of over 95% and it is this quality pass that allows the young women to attend University and further their studies.
Our learners are supported by a staff of highly qualified and dedicated staff who offer a comprehensive academic support programme. In addition, our learners are offered the opportunity to participate in a number of academic extra-curricular activities, aimed to extend their learning beyond the national curriculum.
The development of our country’s future leaders is a vital role of all schools. At Westville Girls’ High, the learners are introduced to the concept of “Leadership through Service”. Learners are offered many opportunities to serve their community through Interact (in partnership with the Rotary Club of Westville) and Eco Club.
Learners engage in service and leadership activities in each grade, including a solid Representative Council of Learners (RCL) and Mentor and Monitor positions in Grades 11 & 12.
