Even though the matric class of 2022 was severely affected by the Covid pandemic, Fairbairn College still got it right to achieve a 96,6% pass rate from its matriculants.

Overall, the high schools in Goodwood boast excellent results. President High School with a pass rate of 96,1%, Goodwood College had a pass rate of 91,9%, and J.G. Meiring a pass rate of 85,5%.

Jo-Anne Malcolm, the Grade 12 grade head of the 2022 class at Fairbairn College, says the school has high academic standards and always aims for a 100% pass rate.

Malcolm explained that “the 2022 grade 12s were badly impacted by the covid pandemic”.

“So, it was inevitable that they would struggle,” Malcolm said. This comes after a drop from last year’s exquisitely 97,9% matric pass rate at the school.

“We are still immensely proud of our learners. Fairbairn College is committed to achieving its goal of a 100% pass rate,” Malcolm said.
