Head's message

The Girls’ Prep was founded in 1995, with the expectation of growing a girls’ school that is specifically focused on girl issues and the development of the girl child.

We focus on our young ladies acquiring the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that they will need for the 21st century. In addition to balancing the sporting, cultural, spiritual and academic facets of St Stithians, I hope that our girls will develop a sense of service to the community, both in the school and beyond.

At Girls’ Prep we strive to develop young women who not only have a sense of who they are as South Africans, but also an understanding that they can be proactive citizens of the world.
