Established in 1940, Herzlia is a Jewish community school aimed at providing a Jewish and secular education to the Jewish youth of Cape Town, regardless of religious affiliation. We are aligned to Orthodox Judaism and recognize the centrality of Israel as the natural home of the Jewish People.
Our educational foundation, supplemented by core Jewish values, rests on five pillars: Academics, Jewish Life & Learning (JLL), Sport, Arts & Culture, and Menschlichkeit.
Herzlia has more than 2000 pupils, from pre-school through to Grade 12. Over the decades, we have become a leader in education in the Western Cape. Having consistently attained a 100% pass rate, we have successfully become one of the top feeder schools to UCT.
