Admissions & Expression of Interest Form

The language of instruction at the school shall be English with the obvious exception of Afrikaans offered as an additional language. It is in the best interest of the pupil that they are able to cope in an English medium environment.

Priority will be given to pupils whose parents/legal guardians (as recognised by SA law):

  • comply in full with the Admission Procedure, submitting all documentation on time, and
  • who permanently reside in the area for which the School is the nearest suitable school.


The prescribed consent form must be completed in full and signed.


Applications for Grade 2-7 shall reach the Admissions Secretary by the end of the third school term of each year (for admission to the School for the following year).

Admission to Grades 2-7 shall only be considered should there be available space and if the applicant fulfils the requirements of the Admissions Policy which have been approved by the School Governing Body.


The residential address should be that of the parent or legal guardian. If the guardian is not the biological parent, proof of legal guardianship (as recognised by SA law), including a commitment to pay school fees, must accompany the application. The applicant must permanently reside at the address.

PLEASE NOTE THAT APPLICATION DOCUMENTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON THIS WEBSITE AND CAN ONLY BE OBTAINED FROM THE SCHOOL RECEPTION OFFICE BETWEEN 08h00 AND 15h00, MONDAY TO FRIDAY DURING SCHOOL TERMS.
