Sir Pierre Van Ryneveld is a state high school that operates within the Gauteng Department of Education and is based in Kempton Park, Johannesburg. The school was established in 1966 to cater for the needs of learners requiring English medium education. During the past three decades the school has provided for the educational needs of thousands of young men and women.

Currently, as an ex-model C school we are catering for approximately 1320 learners. We are a community based school that seeks to provide our learners with basic curriculum needs and to empower them with knowledge and life skills that will enable them to make a positive contribution to our country.

This school’s mission, as an essentially academic institution, is to unlock the treasures of knowledge and skill for each individual pupil in harmony with our calling to encourage all pupils in our care to social maturity and the fulfillment of their talents.
