Campus Information

Penryn is distinctly Lowveld – a place of beauty and hope, with magnificent views as far as the eye can see. The campus is situated among bushveld trees, inhabited by indigenous birdlife, on Boschrand ridge overlooking Mbombela (Nelspruit) and the Crocodile River Valley in Mpumalanga, South Africa.


Penryn’s scholars are part of the Penryn family for life. It does not matter who you are or where you came from, at Penryn we have a sense of belonging that enables our scholars to find themselves.

Our scholars realise the privilege of a private school education and are taught the responsibility to give back and set an example for others.
