THE Wykeham Collegiate (TWC) in Pietermaritzburg is an independent school for girls from Grade RRR to Grade 12 that offers boarding from Grade 4 to Grade 12 for girls from South Africa and beyond.

The school has a comprehensive range of amenities that include state-of-the-art computer and sports facilities and TWC is also one of the few schools in South Africa to offer sport and exercise science as a subject from Grade 10.

“Education is about helping pupils identify, ignite and develop their passions and TWC provides an environment in which girls can grow, learn, take risks and discover more about themselves. Education is not only about the acquisition of academic, cultural and sporting skills, it is also about the development of social skills and emotional intelligence.

“By the time girls leave TWC, they should have a good understanding of who they are. We aim to develop compassionate, confident leaders who are capable of developing positive relationships in all areas of their lives. We teach girls about accountability and about choices having consequences, positive or negative. We teach them to value and embrace diversity. We also teach them resilience and to see setbacks as opportunities rather than as failures,” said lady principal, Sue Tasker.

TWC helps every pupil to fulfil her potential and to be as prepared as she can be to take her place in society.

The TWC Open Day will take place on Saturday, 25 February at 8.30am.
