Facilities

Boarding school 

Our boarding school offers safe, modern accommodation for learners from Grade 6. With a maximum of four learners per room, free Wi-Fi, laundry and housekeeping facilities, comfortable learning areas and supervision by dedicated teachers and assistants, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home. 

 

School transport 

Our school transport service is available to learners travelling to and from our school, at an additional cost as stipulated in our fees letter (see Downloads). Pick-up and drop-off points are available in Academia, Pioneers Park, Dorado Park and Hochland Park.

 

Activity facilities 

As a Curro Select school, our school’s facilities are designed to accommodate a wide variety of sports and cultural activities on the premises. Our activity facilities include a 1 000-seater school hall, a tuck shop and coffee shop, Rhino-Turf rugby fields, netball/tennis courts, cloakrooms, cricket nets and an AstroTurf hockey field. 

 

Modern classrooms 

We have created a safe, modern environment in which children in small class sizes can grow accustomed to learning and working with modern equipment and facilities. Our classrooms are designed to create a feeling of learning through educational decor, but without causing undue distraction. 

Classrooms for specialised subjects, such as Technology and Physical Sciences, are equipped with tools that allow learners in small class sizes to interact with the learned material through experiments or projects in addition to our quality online school option. 

 

Parent advisory committee 

As a Curro Select school, we encourage parents to play a role in managing our school through a duly elected parent advisory committee (PAC). As the name indicates, the PAC’s role is strictly an advisory one – they do not make and enforce decisions regarding school matters. The committee comprises parents of current learners. At Windhoek Gymnasium, our PAC acts as liaison between the school and parents, raises funds through specific events throughout the year, and hosts social and fellowship events. Through the PAC, parents can share their input in a structured manner to the benefit of the learners and the school. As a school community, they can, therefore, be involved in the operational success of the school. 

 

We have an online school 

Our quality online school option is available to learners from Grade 4. Rather than attend physical classes, learners can learn from home through online lessons, and online or physical learning materials – with no need for parents to teach. They are in touch with their teachers regularly, and all examinations continue to be written at school, although continuous online assessment may occur. In addition, the nature of our quality online school allows for more affordable school fees. 

 

Windhoek Gymnasium history 

On 17 January 2007, our school opened its doors for the first time, with 280 learners from Grades 1 to 8. This number grew to 340 learners towards the end of 2007 and, in 2008, we added the secondary school, bringing our total number of learners to 700. 

We joined Curro in 2016

In 2009, we added the pre-primary section, with 150 children. This remarkable growth proved to us that our school indeed offers what parents want for their children – a balance between academics, sport and culture, all of a high standard. On 1 March 2016, we proudly became a Curro Select school and, today, we have more than 2 000 learners.
