We have three hostels currently run with the help of VG hostel staff and Rhodes University students. The hostels are as follows:



Eleanor Brown House


Mrs R. Michaels


The junior hostel that is home to Grade 8 to Grade 10 is the perfect place to mould young minds and a great start for someone who is new to town and hoping to find new friends.  This house is a working environment and the notion that education is important but fun is never forgotten, with the help of supporting staff and great people who make this house something special.  Ms Michaels is the the EB matron.

Beaufort House


Ms S. Dampies


The senior hostel which houses Grade 11 and 12s is the perfect place for mature, dedicated young people.  With the help of the kind and hard working staff this hostel has become a place of more than learning; but has been to many girls a place to mature and grow.  Ms Dampies is the matron in charge of this hostel, aided by Ms Jevons..

Renfrew House


This is another smaller house that reinforces the idea of a homely hostel. The house is run with the help of three staff members and around 22 house mates. This house has a relaxed vibe and the close relationship of the girls creates lasting friendships.  Renfrew House houses the Grade 9s.  The hostel mother for 2018 is Ms Roberts.



Denise long house


This small hostel creates a homely environment in which girls can focus on their academics and where they learn to be responsible and to behave maturely.  The hostel currently hosts visiting schools from out of town and provides accomodation over the various fedtivals.
