Nestled in Durban’s suburb of Westville, the school boasts impressive facilities for its learners, allowing students to pursue a full programme of academics and extra-curricular activities. The school opened in 1964 and has maintained a consistently high academic standard. It is ranked among the top public girls’ schools in South Africa, and has had an unbroken 100 per cent NSC pass rate since 1991. One of our core areas of our mission statement is the maintenance of excellence and academic excellence will always be the school’s primary pursuit.

WGHS strives to provide an academic education that opens the doors to higher education institutions. We pride ourselves on our high academic standards and our approach towards developing well-rounded young women, who embody our motivating phrase of “Dignity in Diversity”.

In addition, WGHS is committed to providing a holistic educational environment for learners where cultural, sporting, service and leadership activities are encouraged.
