HEADMASTER'S WELCOME

Welcome to Western Province Preparatory School.

We are an independent, Christian school in the heart of Cape Town with a rich history and tradition of educating boys for the last 102 years.

Our aim at WPPS is to unlock our boys’ God-given talents by providing them with a wide variety of activities, experiences and resources with which they are able, not only to find their strengths, but also to develop them optimally. Our education is aimed at developing the whole child – namely the mind (academically and culturally), the body (on the sportsfield), the heart (values) and the soul (spiritually).

In doing all of this, we are very conscious of the need to inculcate the correct attitudes in our boys. They not only need skills, but they also need to have the drive, passion, discipline, resilience and determination to succeed. At WPPS, we endeavour to inspire our boys to engage positively and with purpose, in order for them to make their dreams a reality.

“Iusta Tenete” is our motto and it means “Hold fast to that which is right”. Our boys need to be empowered to have the courage to seek the truth and hold on to it steadfastly. We believe that it is vital that our boys have the values of courage, respect, love, compassion
