High School

At Fatima, we believe in inclusive, holistic education, where we encourage all pupils to strive for excellence and the reaching of their own personal best.


As part of Grade 8 and 9, the girls are introduced to integrated learning where they grapple with real life situations to instil creativity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration as important skills.

We offer a wide range of academic subjects, including IT and EGD as we recognise the importance of technology when preparing the girls for the future.

Our subject packages allow the girls to pursue their interests to best prepare them for tertiary learning. Fatima’s consistently good IEB academic results are testament to the dedication and commitment of the teaching staff. Last year we had 6 placings in top 1% of subjects nationally.
