Oakhill School, an independent school in Knysna, has achieved a 100% pass rate in Grade 12 for the 21st consecutive year, and 92% of students received a University exemption. Thirty five out of thirty eight candidates met the minimum requirements for Bachelor Degree Studies.

Oakhill Headmaster Shane Kidwell said: “Oakhill is proud to celebrate yet another wonderful set of results. Oakhill is a forward-looking school and continues to prepare students with the skills they will need to thrive in a 21st Century world. The staff and the community at large congratulate this group of Matrics warmly and are immensely proud of their achievements.”

Oakhill School writes the National Senior Certificate examination conducted by the Independent Examination Board (IEB) which is an internationally recognized qualification. Oakhill currently has past students studying in South Africa, Europe and the USA and it is good to know that our current students will be able to take up their studies at National or International Universities of their choice. The examination was conducted in accordance with the provisions of UMALUSI which has approved the results.

Said Kidwell: “Oakhill School turned 22 this year and continues to make a significant contribution to the community of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. The Matrics of 2014 follow in a rich tradition of academic excellence, but they are also equipped to find their element and follow their passion as they enter this next phase of their lives. Oakhill has a proud history and a bright future and will be opening its doors to 520+ students in 2015. If you have not experienced Oakhill and the joy which abounds here, please visit our creative, energetic school where all pupils flourish and grow. Without exception, the class of 2014 closed out their careers excellently and the outcome once again proves that, at Oakhill School, young men and women thrive in an environment which encourages them to think, learn and enjoy for life.”
