About Us

Bishop Lavis High School is situated in Bishop Lavis on the Cape Flats, 14 kilometres outside Cape Town. Faced with a myriad of social and economic problems our learners receive the best possible support from a dedicated staff. Our aim is to nurture learners who are not only well educated but are good citizens, who can play a positive, meaningful role in our crumbling democracy and our vision is thus to strive to develop: A desire to learn and a recognition that learning is a life-long process; Appropriate community and cultural values; Physical and interpersonal skills; Self confidence, a high self-esteem and a positive outlook on life; A sense of community responsibility; Respect for self, property and rights of others.

Nelson Mandela

EDUCATION is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Martin Luther King Junior

Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

Henry Ford

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
