Corner Roberts Avenue and Good Hope Street, Kensington, Johannesburg

About

Jeppe High School for Boys is Johannesburg's oldest public school having been established in 1890 in Fairview, Johannesburg. As noted in the book Historic Schools of South Africa "perhaps more than any other Johannesburg school, it reflects the history and changing character of the city and has always been a melting pot for children of diverse socioeconomic, language and cultural backgrounds" Recognised as one of South Africa's Top 20 boys schools, the defining characteristics of the men it produces often centre on the principles of loyalty, honour and friendship. Whilst many Jeppe pupils have gone on to become captains of industry, famous politicians and international sportsmen, it is the ability of the school to shape the characters of boys into men which is its greatest success.
