High School

Encouraging students and staff to strive for excellence in their academics, personal growth, and contributions to society.

Headmasters Welcome

Milnerton High School is a family made up of teachers and learners who enjoy the challenges and rewards of a quality, well-rounded education. Our broad base of activities (both curricular and extra-curricular) reflect our diversity and provide opportunities for learners to find their niche and excel. Through these opportunities, we teach our learners to live healthy, balanced lives, and give them space to make good decisions and take positive risks while having fun along the way.

Our School motto is Lux Esto – let there be light. As we endeavor to inspire and lead our learners to maturity, we hope to shine light on your child’s potential and illuminate his or her future.
