At Rondebosch Boys’ High School, we see it as our societal imperative to deliver good men. To get there we speak to core shared values and offer opportunities for intellectual, physical and ethical development. We strive to provide a nurturing environment where pupils can develop to their fullest potential. With pride and passion, we maintain outstanding academic standards whilst embracing cultural, sporting and social endeavours to prepare learners for adult life.

For the thirteenth year, our young men achieved a 100% pass rate. Given the context of the year it is especially commendable that this cohort achieved a 95.8% university entrance rate. 167 candidates achieved a record 497 A symbols and 19 students achieved a full house of 7 A symbols.  Special mention should go to Steffan Brundyn who achieved above 90% in all of his eight subjects and to Veren Naidoo who came second in Mathematics nationally and achieved 100% for this subject. Veren also achieved 8 A symbols.

While these excellent results are the culmination of years of focus and hard work on the part of both the boys and their teachers, they are also indicative of the determination and goal orientation of a group that were often expected to work in isolation. We must therefore also recognise the supportive parent community who have had to encourage, support and mentor more consciously than ever before.

We are very proud of the class of 2020 and all who have supported them in their quest for excellence.
