Penryn has produced some of the most all-rounded professionals and creative industry leaders in the nation, who are true ambassadors for their community and we couldn’t be prouder.

Maintaining an ongoing relationship with past scholars ensures that we are constantly aware of their dynamic achievements and success stories.
Our true measure of success is not only reflected in our matrics’ final results, but is also recognised in the achievements of those that have graced our school. Many of them are global thinkers and game-changers in their industries.

Penryn would not be here today if were not for our ‘twinning relationship’ with St Stithians College.

David Wylde, the then head of St Stithians College in Johannesburg, along with a group of like-minded South Africans, including Enos Mabuza, Bill Carter and Dr Simeon Selby Ripinga, had a vision in the late 1980s to form ‘a beacon school’ - now known as Penryn.

It was at Pretoria Boys High, as housemaster of Solomon House in 1988, that David first discussed the concept of Penryn with Peter Anderson. It was preordained that two old Andreans were talking about what St Stithians could do for the disadvantaged youth of South Africans.

Fast forward some 30 years and one can see the incredible journey Penryn and St. Stithians has taken to form this centre of excellence we call Penryn.

As the only school in Mpumalanga affiliated to St Stithians, Penryn’s scholars benefit from the link with this top-tier school and are provided with unique opportunities to attend its elite Johannesburg-based festivals and other events.

Penreach was initially modelled on St Stithians’ community service project, but has since grown to be one of the largest educational outreach programmes in South Africa. As a result, Penryn now offers its learnings to St Stithians, and the significant reciprocal relationship between the two schools continues.

Round Square
Part of being a global citizen is embracing diversity and having the servant leadership skills needed to unify people.
Our scholars are thus strongly encouraged, through their club commitments, to become involved in service-based activities within their immediate and global communities.

Founded in 1966, Round Square is a global network of innovative schools in 50 countries, on six continents, that share a passion for experiential learning and character education.
Penryn is the only affiliated Round Square school in Mpumalanga. We offer the programme to junior and senior scholars. If selected, they get the opportunity to travel locally and internationally, representing Penryn as part of this global network.

The Round Square approach is built around learning’s six IDEALS:
I = Internationalism; D = Democracy; E = Environmentalism; A = Adventure; L = Leadership and S = Service.

Membership of the Round Square network offers schools a framework for excellence and continuous improvement, along with structured opportunities to collaborate and share experiences with like-minded peers around the world.

For more information please visit the Round Square website.

We are proud to host Mpumalanga’s only international soccer academy - Sporting Portugal. Sporting Portugal offers weekly training for our young soccer enthusiasts, as well as various national and international touring opportunities. The end goal is to groom future soccer stars, who can be drafted for local and international soccer leagues.
