Pretoria Boys High School, commonly known as PBHS, is a public co-educational English medium school situated in Brooklyn, a suburb of the city of Pretoria in the Gauteng province of South Africa.
The school began to open its doors to pupils in 1909 and has long grown tremendously since then. Today, it caters to approximately 1,540 boys, including 345 boarders.
PBHS is an all-boys school and serves learners beginning from Grade 8 up to Grade 12.
Pretoria Boys High is administered by a Government Body elected by the parents and run by the National Department of Education and the Gauteng Department of Education.
Apart from its rich history as one of the oldest and best-performing boys’ high schools in South Africa, it is arguably one of the best government boarding high schools in Gauteng province.
In all honesty, PBHS is not, in any way, the cheapest boarding school in Gauteng and not the most expensive either. As with most, if not all, boarding schools around Gauteng province, living in the school hostel costs a few thousand Rand.
