Epworth (Independent High School for Girls)

Epworth is a Christian School with a Methodist ethos, located on a beautiful, secure and well-resourced 15 hectare campus in Scottsville, Pietermaritzburg.

At Epworth Independent High School for Girls we feel passionately about the education of young women. A great education, the needs of the individual and the development

of strong values are essential ingredients for equipping young women to live lives of purpose and lead them to contribute significantly to the society within which they live.

At Epworth, we preserve and promote a tradition of academic excellence. But, we ensure that this pursuit is balanced by our concern for the girls' physical, spiritual and emotional development. It is our aim to encourage the transformation of young girls into intelligent women with integrity.

In keeping with our vision of educating the whole person - soul, body and mind - the school has a long and proud tradition of excellence in Visual Arts, Drama, Music and Dance.

Epworth's sports' philosophy embraces participation while sporting excellence is championed. This is evidenced by the large number of pupils who are chosen for provincial and national teams. Epworth has been the Top School in South Africa for Canoeing (we have won this title 9 times consecutively 2006 - 2014) and has won the Top School in South Africa Championship for Squash 19 times. 

Our Boarding Establishment caters for termly, weekly and overnight boarding in a secure, fulfilling and teenager-friendly environment.
