Bishops (Diocesan College) Post-Secondary

At the foot of Table Mountain is without question South Africa's most beautiful city, Cape Town. Nestled under the mountain is Bishops, founded in 1849 by the newly consecrated Anglican Bishop, Robert Gray, a visionary deeply concerned with the state of public education. It is in pursuit of his vision and through a constant process of growth and development that Bishop Gray's Diocesan College (better known as Bishops) has continued to flourish over the last century and a half.


Education in its broadest sense equips young people to assume many varied roles. Central to this broad education is the academic growth made possible by professional teachers
deeply committed to both teaching and learning, addressing the issues of the day in the context of the present and the past. Acquisition of skills needed for success in today's world are important components of our offer, as are also the development of appropriate attitudes and a concern for social justice for all. We also aim to prepare all our boys  and girls for progression into tertiary education.


Music, art and drama are a vital part of Bishops life.  The Post Matrics are encouraged to take advantage of the rich tradition of music in all its forms - and generallyextend their cultural experiences in a variety of different ways.  As a well-established centre of excellence we have facilities including a fully operational theatre, a professional recording studio and a highly acclaimed music department.



Bishops offers more sports, ranging from individual to team sports so as best to suit the
needs of each student.  These sports include rugby, hockey, cricket, swimming, athletics, basketball, fencing, golf, rowing, squash, tennis, water-polo and much more.
