The Purpose of this Document

The purpose of this policy document is to promote and to facilitate the admission of learners to our school. Right of admission is reserved. 

Fundamental Principles

The fundamental principle of admission to basic education to all is guaranteed by the Constitution. Every child has the right to access to basic education and the right to equal admission to all to educational institutions as determined by the Constitution, Educational Law and the South African Schools Act. No learner may be turned away or refused admission to a school on the basis of race, gender, sex, ethnic or social origin, religion, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, conscience, belief and culture.

Admission of the School

Admission requirements for our schools shall not unfairly discriminate on grounds of race, gender, sex, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, or language.

An application for admission of a learner shall be made to the principal of our school.

If the principal refuses an application under subsection (3) of the Schools Act, we shall inform the parent of the learner in writing. Right of admission reserved. Reasons for admission / non-admission at the school and a reason need not be made known, this is at the discretion the Management team. A letter of acceptance/decline is sent to successful and unsuccessful candidates.

Please note that we do not take NEW Gr. 12 learners, Home Schooled learners or learners from study centres.

Documents necessary for Admission

All documents including ID, birth certificate, transfer card, reports, proof of residence and income (bank statement if self-employed) must carefully be checked and verified before an admission is carried out. It should also be asked if the learner has been suspended from his or her previous school.

An ID document or birth certificate or a study permit for non-residents must be shown to determine the age of the learner. Learners who can’t furnish an identity document must present the necessary documentation before the end of the first term to allow the parent to obtain the necessary documentation from the Department of Internal Affairs. 

Age of Learners 

When the parent of a learner lodges an application for admission to our school and such learner is three or more years older than the average for the particular grade group, the headmaster and management team will decide if the learner should be admitted to the grade group application was made for.
