Chess at Jeppe is one of the cornerstones of the cultural programme. Chess is a game that teaches boys how to think critically, plan properly and it challenges them to compete against one another on an intellectual level. The Jeppe Chess Club is a busy, happy place. You can often find boys playing games against Mr. Dor at break, trying to beat the old master at his game. Many boys play chess socially, some are beginners who enjoy learning about the game and honing their skills against their friends. The serious players, however, work hard to be among the best of the best.

In recent years, Jeppe has placed consistently in the top three in the Johannesburg Central Chess League. Jeppe also participates in both the individual and team tournaments organised by the GDE. The under-15, under-17 and under-19 teams are often rated in the top ten chess teams in the province. In 2019 the under-15 team placed 3rd overall in their division at the Gauteng Champs.
