Sports and Culture

Extra-curricular activities are part of the learning process at Jeppe. Boys are expected to be dedicated and committed, to give of their best, without making winning competitions their only aim in competing.


Boarding has been a vital part of the Jeppe community for over a century. The Boarding Houses provide a safe and nurturing environment, a home from home in which boys are supported to reach their full potential.

Academic offering

Academic performance is at the centre of all that we do at Jeppe. Boys are expected to give full effort in all that they do, but academic activities will always take precedence.

Pastoral Care

Jeppe has a system of houses, tutors and a school-based support team, all aimed at taking the whole boy into account and ensuring that they have many places to go for support, guidance and help.
