High School

Welcome to our high school

St Patrick’s CBC offers the highly-accredited IEB National Senior Certificate (IEB NSC)

The IEB provides Umalusi-accredited examinations in all subjects recognised in the NSC for the schools that are registered with it.

The IEB NSC is quality-assured by Umalusi, which is the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education. The IEB NSC is an internationally benchmarked qualification and is equivalent to Cambridge AS level. The IEB produces consistent, reliable results in the Grade 12 National Senior Certificate.

By completing the IEB curriculum, St Patrick’s CBC pupils are provided the opportunity to develop skills that will allow them to flourish in life after school.
