Academics

St Henry’s Marist College is justifiably proud of its superb academic record: with a reputation for excellent academic standards, with annual success rates of 100% at Matric level and a very high percentage of candidates obtaining Exemptions. Since 1996, its pupils have written the Independent Examination Board Matric which is regarded as the pre-eminent examination body in South Africa. Modern educational equipment and methods help the pupils develop a spirit of inquiry so that they will undertake personal independent study. The Learning Resource Centre, incorporating the School Library and Archives, is well-equipped to be the nucleus of research and AV style teaching. Sound academic foundations are laid in the Pre-Primary and Junior Preparatory Phase.
