Brescia House School is an independent Catholic day school for girls, situated in the heart of Bryanston. Established in 1966, Brescia is proud to be a part of a worldwide Ursuline network of schools who collaborate in a Global Education Programme.

The motto of the school, ‘Serviam’ means ‘I will serve’, and a spirit of service to the community is encouraged. While remaining true to the vision of our founders, we welcome pupils of all denominations.

A wide range of academic subjects is on offer, and pupils participate in a variety of extramural sporting and cultural activities. Facilities include heated swimming pools, two hockey fields, a mini astro and eight tennis/netball courts. Sporting activities include swimming, diving, artistic swimming, hockey, netball, soccer, athletics, tennis, cross country, and orienteering. Off-campus, students can participate in the school equestrian team, and a CrossFit programme. Cultural activities include public speaking, TED Talks, debating, global affairs, photography, cooking club, drama, chess, choir, and music. The recent launch of the Brescia House School Music Institute enables students to be exposed to music production and technology. They also learn to record music and songs in the school’s recording booth.

The school has been identified as a Microsoft Showcase School since 2013. In the High School, students attend ICT lessons and use a variety of applications to assist with coding and robotics. From Grade 10, Java is the programming language taught during Information Technology.

In the 2023 matric examinations, the school once again achieved  a 100% pass rate, with 7 placements in the Top 1% of specific subjects.
