About Us

Worcester Gymnasium offers a wide subject choice, which includes academic, commercial and technical subjects. After successfully completing their careers with us, learners may be equipped, depending on individual choice and achievement, to immediately start working, or to study at a college, university of technology, or university. 

Our aim is for our learners to be well balanced individuals and we strive to equip them with a wide range of skills so that they can cope in our multicultural country and the ever-changing world we live in. 

Some people see us as a sport school, some see us as crazy about culture, some see us as a strong academic school. Some know us as the school with the spirit. 

Who are we really? We like to see ourselves as all-rounders, striving for excellence in everything we do, striving to make the best of the many blessings we have received.

Our mission:
To educate our learners, through our pursuit of excellence on all terrains as a value-driven educational institution with Afrikaans and English as teaching languages, towards disciplined, responsible, independent, ethically informed and critical thinking citizens who can confidently take up their rightful place within a multicultural society.
At Worcester Gymnasium we start doing now what will set us apart one day. We dream big, work hard and persevere, inside the classroom and out.
