Our Motto

Rondebosch Boys’ Schools are inspired by the shared motto: ‘Altius et Latius’ and our symbol of the tree, both of which teach us that the broader the base, the higher we can grow. The combined strength of the schools and Old Boys’ Union is a unified vision for the boys who pass through our schools to be anchored by strong roots in order to grow ‘Higher and Wider’.

Our Family

From a very simple beginning in 1897, we have grown to include Little Bosch (Grade R), Rondebosch Boys’ Preparatory School, Rondebosch Boys’ High School and Rondebosch Old Boys’ Union. Situated at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain, each school boasts beautiful, spacious grounds and provides a balanced curriculum aimed at the attainment of excellence. Lessons are presented by a highly qualified team of teachers and we have a well-respected reputation in all aspects of education, including Academics, Sport, Music and the Arts. Our Old Boys’ Union serves to anchor the Rondebosch family by maintaining fellowship amongst past students and assisting in the advancement of the schools in all of their activities.

Our History

The Rondebosch High School for Junior Boys was established in 1897 in response to the pressing need for a boys’ school in the growing suburb. Mr Robert Ramage took on the role of Headmaster with an initial enrolment of eight pupils in a church hall.  An acre of land at the corner of Campground and Rouwkoop Roads was purchased, school buildings were erected and teaching commenced there in September 1898.
