Welcome to
Windhoek Gymnasium

Windhoek Gymnasium envisions a Namibian school where learners, parents and dedicated staff all collaborate, as a school family, to achieve the highest standard of educational and interpersonal excellence in the country. 

Our mission is to provide high quality, holistic education with high academic standards to learners from 2 years old to Grade 12.

The purpose is to educate and develop the full potential of each learner through: 

  • the development of character and personal growth; 
  • development of body, mind and spirit, and 
  • the stimulation of intellectual, academic and physical growth. 

We host a complete English and a complete Afrikaans stream in the primary phase, as well as German from 2018. The Afrikaans stream is gradually exposed to the English terminology in the various subjects from Grade 4, in order for them to be well-prepared for complete transition to English as medium of tuition from Grade 8. Because English is our national and international language, as well as the language in the business world, we believe that learners should be taught in English from this optimal stage. 

The Namibian National Curriculum is followed, and a lot of enrichments are built in where possible and necessary. For Grades 11 and 12, the Cambridge system is followed. 

Windhoek Gymnasium will always offer to provide services to our learners and their parents to enrich their lives and make it more comfortable, contributing to a positive attitude in our community. 

No discrimination is tolerated with regard to race, colour or culture. In Windhoek Gymnasium we want learners of all races and cultures of our beautiful country to interact and communicate with each other, and learn and respect each other’s cultures and traditions. Because this is the only way to establish and maintain reconciliation and unity in our country. We believe that positive relations built at Windhoek Gymnasium will ripple through to the rest of our community. 

Windhoek Gymnasium has an absolute holistic approach to education – our learners are not only educated as far as academic studies are concerned, but they are taught to strive for excellence in every facet of their lives. 

At Windhoek Gymnasium we aim that learners will enjoy school, and that their lives will be enriched by the activities and interaction at school, as a bonus to the excellent education that they receive. 

Since 2007, our school has received annual recognition for being the best independent school in Namibia. From 2008 to 2017, we received the Diamond Arrow Award as Best Private School in Namibia, with exceptionally high ratings. 

It is a privilege to welcome you to our website and look forward to welcoming you to the Windhoek Gymnasium family.
