High School

Harriston scholars write the internationally benchmarked Independent Examination Board (IEB) matric examinations and has the excellent record of 100% pass rate since the inception of the school. The vast majority of our pupils go on to obtain degrees at well-known universities, both in South Africa and abroad.

We believe that our purpose is to ensure that our students acquire the skills and qualifications needed to take them on to the next stage of their education with confidence and the determination to meet and conquer challenges.
