In the German stream learners graduate with the German International Abitur as well as the IEB NSC, which entitles them to study in Germany, South Africa, and in more than 100 countries worldwide. Teaching and tests take place according to the bilingual character, in German and English.

After successful negotiations between the governments of the Republic of South Africa and the Federal Republic of Germany, the high school (Grade 10-12) follows the development in Germany and Europe to shorten the time spent at school, but retaining the same high academic level.
