Grey will always hold a special place in my heart and as an Old Grey I will still fly the Grey flag high. I am a recent graduate and my brother has also just graduated from The Grey as well.
This school is unlike any other, it will not only allow your child access to world class facilities that they require in order to flourish academically but also enrich their life through various cultural and sporting exploits.
Apart from sport and academics, grey provides other things that not many schools in the world can, things such a brotherhood and bonds that will stand the test of time and last their lifetime, it will also instil a sense of discipline and responsibility, and finally it will equip your son with the tools to adapt to and tackle life.
I as an Old Grey would not trade my time at the Grey for anything in this world, the memories and friendships that I made there over many years will always be cherished and held dear.
You will not regret sending your son to this fine institution.
Grey High is the perfect school and is an awesome experience I have learned so much over my years at grey and utterly love the gees and derbys and is without a doubt one of the best schools in South Africa (me coming from different areas including Woodridge and Pearson) what an amazing institution all are welcome and respected. Sport is on another level compared to other port Elizabeth schools
Grey has utterly lowered my expectations from once an amazing school and now because of COVID 19 the schools motto has crumbled. I am an old grey and I have 3 of my sons in the school and I am thinking of taking them out because of the shocking way the school has become. The COVID protocols are shocking and the teacher at the gate does not even take your temperature sometimes he just lets you in without checking theres only sanitizer in a few places inside the whole school and during exams 90 people were squeezed into the hall to write exams they have lost control. Many other schools are canceling exams for all their grades except grade 12 to slow the infection rate of COVID but grey obviously does not care if multiple students or parents get COVID or die from COVID the school has dropped their standards lower than I even thought was possible which is very upsetting.
Grey was always a great school but in 2020 their COVID rules are terrible there is no social distancing and only a few classes have sanitizer many students and teachers are getting covid and the school is still deciding to make all the grades write exams which is disgusting they should prioritize the grade 12s and cancel other grades exams to ensure that the grade 12s can finish their exams, most other schools in Port Elizabeth have COVID regulations in place and have cancelled exams so that their grade 12s can finish and the teacher at the gate does not even take the boys temperature properly sometimes he just lets people in without checking their temperature or forms its terrible Grey has really lowered their standards and i would never of expected this from my old school this is deeply upsetting and I hope they change their ways
The Grey High School Motto - Tria Juncta in Uno (Three joined in one)
The "tria" in the motto refers to three important characteristics of a human being - Mind, Body and Spirit. The Grey High School believes in having a balance in life; very important.
I have been thoroughly impressed by the level of quality displayed throughout MY school; from the learners to the cleaners to the building itself. Every Grey High boy takes pride in everything he does, whether that is playing sport, completing academic work or simply having to overcome a difficult life task.
The facilities at The Grey are impeccable - as a Grey boy, you always feel at home. Even if you play sport for the lowest team, you play on excellent fields, AstroTurfs or pitches that are well looked after. The classrooms and its contents always look squeaky clean and the bins are always empty at the start of a school day.
The staff members at The Grey are always friendly, kind and helpful. They always give their best, in the classroom AND on the sport field. The staff, also, assist learners in whatever difficult task that needs to be completed.
The Grey boys always display excellent manners in front of adults and always address them as "Sir" or "Ma'am". You will never be treated badly when in the company of a Grey boy.
Grey boys also have a special sense of pride and passion for their school, especially when it is a Derby weekend. This passion is something that can't be explained. It truly is indescribable and remarkable. I ask of you to attend just one Grey High rugby match, you will be at a loss for words when YOU, also, witness the intense passion the Grey boys have for their school.
In conclusion, Grey High School is a school that presents many challenges, but with numerous rewards. A parent will never regret their decision if they decide to place their child/children in Grey High. Very soon, their children will be part of the proud tradition that Grey has been known for for over 150 years!
From great values to rich history, Grey Boys High School is one school were boys are shaped and groomed to be Gentlemen.
Our motto,"Tria Juncta Uno" meaning 3 joined in one embodies what GREY is about the unity of Academics, Sport and Culture. Grey Boys High School provides and produces fine gentlemen from the likes of the Springbok captain. I really hope I've been able to invision what Grey Boy's High School is about.
Im a learner at Grey and I enjoy every moment at that school. The work we learn and the homework we get, I really enjoy and I understand it. It might be an all boys school but it is all I wanted in a high school. The brotherhood,support and help from my friends and the teachers is what I appreciate the most.
Good school, but the big numbers don’t allow for good mentoring and monitoring of social circles isn’t good. Bullying takes place regularly. Teachers know it happens but continue to let it happen. School has hierarchy system that needs to be dismantled if it wants to move forward. Change within the school is a glacial pace. Also the only way one receives praise is by being good at sport.
This is a very special school with a very special culture and group of people. The school is equipped with the best teachers and sport coaches in South Africa and is the best school I’ve experienced by far . The discipline that will be installed in you at this school is up to scratch , the school also has many amazing traditions.
