Adam Rogers, Executive Head of Reddam House Umhlanga, congratulates the students and commends them on their achievements: “In 2017, our first cohort of matrics set an excellent standard by achieving a 100% bachelor degree pass rate. It has been most affirming that the Class of 2022 has continued this trend, meaning that our young college has achieved an impressive 100% bachelor’s degree pass rate in five of our six years of producing matric students. Consequently, every Reddam House Umhlanga matric student has qualified to apply for tertiary study. There are very few schools within the IEB’s cohort that can boast of a 100% bachelor’s degree pass rate on an annual basis.”

He adds, “For the first time in our college’s history, three of our students achieved nine distinctions each, and for the second time in our history, one of our students obtained 100% for mathematics, which was closely followed by another who achieved 99%, and the third highest mathematics achiever came in with 98%.”

Catherine Raw, Head of Senior Prep and College of Reddam House Ballito, says, “When Reddam House opened a brand-new school in Ballito in 2019, the Grade 9 cohort were the oldest group in the school and took on a leadership role for the four years from Grade 9 to Grade 12. This group of 16 students were steadfast in their resolve to set the bar high and to make the most of their unique position as the first matriculants at Reddam House Ballito. They have exceeded their expectations with excellent results, and we are so proud of our iconic 2022 matric students.”

Ravi Nadasen, CEO of Inspired South Africa, says, “I am enormously proud of the KZN matric students for embracing the opportunities they were given with both hands, for working hard consistently, and for keeping their life goals in sight as they faced the challenges in their lives.”
