In 1910 Ellie Campbell Rodger took first place on the Beit Scholarship examination and she passed the School Higher examination and Matriculation examination. She also gained the Beit Bursary for one hundred pounds a year for three years and studied in Scotland. She took her M.A. degree at Edinburgh University and she was the first Rhodesian to gain this distinction and, incidentally headed the school's academic honours list.

In 1911 five girls passed the Beit Scholarship examination, one passed the Junior Certificate examination, and two girls Matriculated. In 1914 Elisabeth Greenfield was the first girl in Rhodesia to obtain a first class in the Matriculation examination and she subsequently gained a scholarship to study at the South African College in Cape Town.
