From the Principal


Welcome to Bishops and our College website. These pages will attempt to give insight to life as a Bishops pupil and show you what wonderful experiences and opportunities are on offer at our school. While it is impossible to capture the true spirit of a place electronically, particularly a school, you will get a sense of what it is we stand for, what we consider important, what our boys enjoy and how they experience life at Bishops. There is no doubt that with such a variety of activities and experiences here, there is something for everyone.

We believe in boys’ schools as places that offer a unique space for boys to develop at their own pace and catering for their own individual needs. We believe they are environments where boys can express themselves properly and we can tackle issues important to their development as good young men in a safe space. We believe in the all-round development of young men to be the best version of themselves they can be. This development needs not only to be academic, sporting and cultural through the many activities on offer, but also spiritually and emotionally as we strive to help our boys on this journey from boyhood to manhood.

We have an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of each young man that comes to our school and through him, influence the broader community of Cape Town and South Africa. Indeed, many of our boys will positively influence others not only in our own country but across our planet.

As the “new” Principal of Bishops, I welcome you warmly to the school and look forward to engaging with you in the times ahead. Enjoy this virtual visit to our school.

Mr Tony Reeler
Principal
