Victoria Park High School is a co-educational higher education day-school located in Port Elizabeth’s sought-after Walmer suburb.


Founded in 1940, the school retains the founder’s emphasis on the development of all aspects of young people.





The education minister has announced that we may not welcome back grade 10's

until further notice. VPHS will be applying to get grade 10's back as soon as possible.

Screening Procedure letter



Schools will re-open for grade 12 pupils on

Monday, 8 June as instructed by the Minister

of Education. Please note that the school

was ready to receive pupils today but this

was vetoed by the Minister. The procedure for

returning to school is as follows:

Only pupils on the Group 1 list are to arrive

at school on Monday. Group 2 will return

on Tuesday. Please look at the lists sent

to you to check to which group you have been

allocated. Ensure that you bring your cellphone

to school for screening and registration

purposes. If you do not have a cellphone

there is an alternative method of screening

and registration in place. We look forward

to seeing Group 1 on Monday.

Take care and keep safe.
