The school has just been informed by the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation that we are their number 1 school in the country as part of the 2013 Circle of Excellence Schools. This is an outstanding achievement. This is based on access to and awarding of their substantial scholarships to our pupils.

We list their 100 schools which show what an achievement this is.

Extract form their release to their schools.

It is exciting to note that there is a new Circle of Excellence school in the number one spot for the first time. In this regard, the Foundation would like to congratulate The Settlers High School in Belville, Cape Town for this significant national achievement.

Please find the fully list of 2013 Circle of Excellence Member Schools below. Note that this list is ranked in numerical order. These schools will also be invited to the Circle of Excellence Leadership Event in the 3rd quarter of 2013. As can be expected, we have an exciting agenda to look forward to.
