Wynberg Boys’ High School
Summary

Founded in 1841 by John McNaughton in Glebe Cottage at St John's Church, Wynberg is officially the second oldest school in SA. Since 1853, and despite four changes of venues around the Wynberg hill, Wynberg Boys' High School has been unashamedly a school for boys and great emphasis is still placed on manners, pride in uniform and respect for all. Through activities in the classroom, in the fiercely competitive matches on the sports fields, on the stages of music and dramatic productions or in the multiplicity of service opportunities, the school's mission remains the same - to ignite boys' curiosity and passion, to support their drive for excellence in all they pursue, to encourage them in their journey to young adulthood and to challenge them to make a difference in every area of life in which they involve themselves. Over its 170 history, names of Wynberg men have etched themselves in the highest echelons of politics, the armed forces, the business world, sport and the humanities. Notable alumni include Jacques Kallis and Richard Levi (cricket), Rob Louw (rugby), Paul Revington (SA hockey Coach), John Scott (Editor: Cape Times), Mendel Kaplan (Head of World Jewry) and Andrew Feinstein (politician).
