The Port Rex Technical High School in East London is one of only two fully Technical High Schools in South Africa. We provide our learners with a unique education and preparation for the demands of a forever changing Technological world. Port Rex offers specialization in three fields of Engineering and recognizes the importance of Mathematics and Sciences as foundation. It is this reason that all our learners are required to take Mathematics and Science up to Grade 12 level.

The Port Rex Aim and

Our aim at Port Rex Technical High School is to expose our learners, within the protected background at high school level, to an Academic environment which will facilitate the opportunity to acquire practical skills and useful knowledge. Learners are then equipped and ready with skills and knowledge to take into post grade 12 study or the world of work to enable a meaningful contribution to the South African commercial sector.

Deeply rooted in the Port Rex philosophy is the concept that our educational package should seek relevance with Industry. It is this belief that governs our Employment and Social Responsibility Programme. Over the last 30 years we have developed a beneficial relationship with a cross-section of local and national businesses in the Technological and Manufacturing Sector, who actively seek out and welcome applications from our learners.

Port Rex Technical High School has its roots in the Technical section of the East London Technical College (1928-1968). In 1968, day scholars of the Technical and Commercial divisions separated from the Technical College to form the East London Technical High School and the East London Commercial High School.
