Description:
Pretoria Boys High School, also known as Boys High or PBHS, is a public, fee charging, English medium high school for boys located in Brooklyn, Pretoria, in the Gauteng province of South Africa.

The school's distinctive red-brick buildings, which have national monument status, were built in the Neoclassical style and date from 1909. The main building of the school, sited on Waterkloof Hill, sits opposite to the distant Union Buildings on Meintjieskop.

Sporting facilities include rugby union, cricket and hockey fields, a gymnasium, two swimming pools (one for waterpolo), Olympic standard athletics grounds, several tennis and squash courts, several basketball courts, an AstroTurf, and a rock-climbing wall. The school grounds also includes a second campus (Pollock Campus), a man-made pine forest, a now-disused shooting range, an amphitheatre and an artificial lake (Loch Armstrong).
