Jeppe High School for Boys
Jeppe High School for Boys is Johannesburg’s oldest public school having been established in 1890 in Fairview, Johannesburg.
As noted in the book Historic Schools of South Africa “perhaps more than any other Johannesburg school, it reflects the history and the changing character of the city and has always been a melting pot for children of diverse socioeconomic, language and cultural backgrounds”.
Recognised as one of South Africa’s Top 20 boys schools, the defining characteristics of the men it produces often centre on the principles of loyalty, honour, and friendship. Jeppe’s ability to shape the characters of boys into men is its greatest success.

From the Headmaster
Dear Jeppe community,
With schools now officially closed as a result of the national state of disaster declared by President Ramaphosa, from an academic perspective, as previously communicated to both parents and learners, we will move to an online learning platform until we re-open for Term 2 on Tuesday, 14th April.
At this point, I would like to place on record my appreciation to all the academic staff who have rallied together in the past three days to develop their Google classrooms, place content thereon and undergo intensive refresher training on the various distance learning platforms that we are utilising to allow the boys to gain maximum benefit from online learning during the closure period.
Approximately five years ago, the school took the decision to invest heavily into Google Suites for Education (GSFE) and incurred significant financial cost in training staff, purchasing equipment, upgrading classrooms and creating the Director of ICT and Innovation post which Mr Faltermeier currently occupies. This investment is certainly now paying dividends and Mr Faltermeier, at one stage one of only three Google Certified Trainers
in Africa, has been invaluable in driving our online learning strategy and vision, the benefits of which will hopefully be seen in the coming weeks.
