Settlers Agricultural High School

About our School

Lord Milner’s rural settlement policy after the Boer war of 1899-1902 lead to the founding of an English-speaking community at Settlers. The school started in January 1969 as the only English medium high school in the province offering an agricultural field of study. The first headmaster Mr Bill Acres was here from 1950-1985. He was followed by Mr Spike van Schalkwijk then Mr Danie Steyn, Mr Dennis Simons, Mrs Jenny Escreet and then Mr Gerhard Viljoen.The residences which are named after the founder members from the farming community are Dolly Cleverdon, Tom Law and Brian Stone .Mr Brian Stone is ninety plus and has retired to Bela Bela.The other residence is named after Margret Acres wife to Bill.
