Welcome to Wynberg Girls’ Junior School

Welcome to the Wynberg Girls’ Junior site and thank you for taking the time to learn more about our school and our young ladies.  As one of the oldest schools in Cape Town, we have many traditions and a long history of which we are very proud. This does not, however, mean that we are oblivious to new technologies and teaching methods! On the contrary, we pride ourselves on using technology in the classrooms to enhance the learning experience of our girls.

At Wynberg Girls’ Junior, we see sport and cultural activities as important aspects of each girl’s experiences at school. We have recently laid a mini astrofield in our quad, and our girls practise their hockey, netball and ball skills on this superior surface.  The Wynberg Campus of Schools, of which we are a proud member, now have 2 full-sized astrofields, which give us the opportunity to train our girls almost exclusively on astro.  We have created an Aquatic Centre that fully encloses our 25m pool.  This allows our facility to be a true four seasons training pool for our girls.

Our music department is a strong and dynamic one, with a junior and senior choir, marimba bands, vocal ensemble as well as an orchestra. Both individual and group lessons are offered.

Have a look around, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and enjoy your visit to our site!


Wynberg Girls’ Junior aims to honour and
develop the inherent qualities of our
