Oriel Girls High

Oriel Girls High

Oriel Girls High is the home of excellence. The school, located in Chisipite in Harare, strives for academic, social, economical, and moral distinction. It is the sister school to Oriel Boys High school and it caters for children from middle-income families.

Oriel Girls aims to empower the girl child academically, socially, morally, technically and physically to enable her to become a valuable and self-reliant member of the society. The school was officially opened by the federal prime minister Sir Roy Welensky on 1 July 1961.

It enrolled the first pupils in January 1961. The name Oriel was named after Oriel College, an Oxford college. Permission was sought from the college of heralds to use the lions ‘pasant gaurant’ on the school badge. Oriel has since risen to become one of the most popular Girls High Schools in the country, with its foundations deeply rooted in academic and personal excellence.

As the girl child equality movement progresses, Oriel Girls High education has become a critical component to the development of young women.
