“Waterfall College continues to strive for academic excellence. We stand in awe of the improved results that have been achieved due to the determined effort of our matric pupils, the dedication of our teachers and the support and encouragement of our parents.

“The 100% NSC matric pass rate has been maintained and the Bachelor degree pass rate has improved from 85% in 2015 to 88% in 2016. A number of subject averages have improved. In history, the Class of 2016 have the best results to date with 50% of pupils achieving above 70% average.”
