Past and present pupils of a Pretoria private school have penned a three-page open letter to the institution in which they have asked it to publicly acknowledge its history of racial prejudice and discrimination - and change its policies.

Matriculants who attended Cornwall Hill College between 2004 and 2020 apparently contributed to the letter, which News24 has seen.

In it, the writers also called on the school to implement detailed disciplinary action for racism, religious prejudice, queerphobia and other forms of discrimination.
