The Upper School and Grade 12


For many years now St Paul’s has been regarded as one of the top academic schools in the country – a reputation closely guarded and constantly developed.  We follow the curriculum of the Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate (NSSC), which is endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations.  Examinations are written at both the Higher and Ordinary levels.  Our students are frequently amongst the top achievers in the country in these external examinations and recent years have seen as much as 75% of our pupils scoring either a 1 or 2 symbol.  Many of our students are accepted into top faculties in South African and other international universities.

Another sign of academic success at St Paul’s is the level of participation and achievement in national and international Olympiads, Fairs and Expos.  Individual research projects of exceptional quality have enabled students to travel to Science Fairs all over the world.  Students take top prizes for national and world-wide Poetry and Essay competitions.  All of these academic competitions ensure that we constantly benchmark ourselves against international standards.  Each year the Art Exhibition showcases outstanding work done by senior students.

Grades 10 and 11 are overseen by Bridget Jenkins, the Deputy Principal and Head of the Upper School.  Teaching and students become more focussed on the specialised subjects chosen at the end of grade 9.  Exploration is done on possible future careers and students are guided with regard to subject choice based on aptitude as well as a chosen field of tertiary study.  Grade 11’s are also included in the Student Management Council, giving them a chance to try their hand at leadership.

In addition to a year of school leadership, the grade 12 year is focussed on assisting students to achieve their very best in the matric exams with a view to opening up as many avenues of further study for individuals.  Grade 12 is closely overseen by Anthea Daniels who works together with the child, the teachers and the parents to ensure this.  Outstanding results in the NSSC Higher Examinations are testament to how well this focussed grade 12 year works.
