Welcome to Brebner high School

Brebner High School has been serving the Bloemfontein Community since 1906.

Our School has always been an alternative choice for English-speaking scholars in Bloemfontein, irrespective of their culture, religion or political affiliations.

Our School has also given some scholars, who were not academically strong, the opportunity to achieve their goals and many scholars, who are now all over the world, would not have achieved what they have today if it were not for the progressive and “open heart” approach of our school.

Our School, in the same progressive spirit, is now open to all scholars of any culture, race, political affiliations and who want to be educated through the medium of English.

We would thus expect all Brebnerians who could “reap the fruits” of the Brebner Education to be thankful for their time spent here and continue to support the values and ethos of our School while we continue to meet the challenges of the modern era.

Thank you.

Dear Brebnerian

God bless and keep safe
