Sport at GHS

GHS boasts 16 sporting codes and world-class facilities, including an indoor centre, a fully-equipped gym and a heated swimming pool.

After a rigorous selection process by the Department of Sport and Recreation, Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School has been nominated as a Sport Focus School, namely in the disciplines of Hockey, Basketball and Netball. This initiative aims to partner with selected schools to provide top school-going sports men and women with a strong foundation to one day compete at National level and ultimately at the 2022 Durban Commonwealth Games. Eight KwaZulu-Natal schools were awarded this prestigious title, with GHS as the only all girls’ school selected.

We offer multiple sporting disciplines and cater for all girls to participate regardless of their levels or abilities.
