Mathews Phosa High School was instituted in 1994, the year the Republic of South Africa was finally transformed into an all-encompassing democracy.

From an involvement in the education of Black children for 36 years prior to 1994 (and an intense awareness of the shortcomings of the education system) as well as involvement in the preparations for the new dispensation, three important requirements for future education were identified:

  • The culture of teaching and learning would have to be restored and upgraded

  • Previously disadvantaged learners would have to be prepared for employment in areas from which they had previously been excluded i.e. Science, Computer Technology and Commerce

  • Leaders would have to be developed for service in every sphere of the South African society
