Orienteering is a new sport at the school. It is a summer sport, running in the 1st and 4th term and Jeppe competes in a well-structured league competition, with meetings every week.

Orienteering can be described as a cross between cross-country and mapwork. It is an endurance sport which also requires mental skills, which makes it a unique activity that appeals to certain types of sportspeople.

There are between 60 and 70 boys who compete in orienteering and they compete in the top division of the Gauteng Interschool leagues. Meetings are held on a weekly basis at various venues. Jeppe hosts one of the meetings.

Jeppe High School for Boys’ teams up with Jeppe High School for Girls to compete in non-league co-ed events.
