Welcome to Greenwood Bay College.
GBC is a unique school with a charm difficult to describe in words. We are a secular school with a modern, forward-looking approach to education, yet we believe in manners, integrity, trust and self-discipline.

Our evergreen campus on the gentle banks of the Piesang River, lies a few kilometres upstream from the landmark Beacon Isle Hotel in Plettenberg Bay. The sounds of laughter, music and sport fill the air.
Between classes, High School students sit and work unsupervised, play chess on our giant outdoors board, practise music and basketball, or just unwind. Afternoons are a hive of activity, with soccer, hockey, netball, tennis or cricket taking place, depending on the term. Swimming, mountain biking, waterpolo and kayaking are also popular.

The School runs from a toddler class, through Grades 000 - 12, and writes the Cambridge International Examinations. These equip students to enroll at universities overseas if they so wish (and, of course, at South African ones). We now also offer A-Levels.
We are strong academically and pride ourselves on achieving some of the best Cambridge results in the country. We attribute this to excellent teaching and small classes.

We are also a balanced school, and believe in a well-rounded education.
A wide variety of sports and clubs cater to diverse tastes and talents. Our world-class campus, a few minutes from the town centre of Plettenberg Bay, but out in the country and surrounded by farmland and horses, is the perfect place for a young person to grow and discover themselves.
Our dedicated teachers are passionate about education and in guiding young minds.

Please drop us a line, give us a call, or pop in to visit if you are in the beautiful Garden Route.
