A time-honoured tradition of academic prestige, sporting triumphs and solid values, with a spiritual approach that is all embracing, provides the basis for outstanding and balanced schooling. By providing these ingredients, we encourage our pupils to excel ... and that is precisely what excellence, and Springfield, is all about.
History & Ethos
When six Dominican sisters left Ireland forever in the 1860’s to establish a girls’ school in Cape Town, we were decidedly blessed. Guided by faith and dedication, they purchased the spacious and beautiful Springfield estate in Wynberg, then considered “the countryside”. Founded in 1871, Springfield Convent School is steeped in almost 150 years of cherished history. Yet remaining with the times, we blend our tradition with a contemporary outlook. Today, our nursery to matric pupils are nurtured by an ethos that resonates withthe principles and values of academic excellence, spiritual awareness, physical well-being and social generosity. This integrated approach is underpinned by our motto: Veritas – Truth.
Our education is inspired by Christian values and instilled with Catholic character and tradition. We welcome girls of all faiths and backgrounds since we teach respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others.
